Rental / Galicia & Asturias

We are planning to go to the north of Spain for 6 month in the summer from

We are looking for a house to rent there for that period. We would like it to be close to some village or town (ideally on the coast) and with a garden.

Does anyone out their in Digameland would know of such a property?
Is there a network like the fabulous Digamextra out there which covers the northern region that anyone knows of.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Response Regarding surge protectors….

Some only work once but continue to provide mains power but there is no indication that the surge protection is not functioning anymore!!

You get what you pay for I guess,

Cheers, Keith



Responses –Amazon Fire Stick

In response to yesterday’s enquiry, I have used a Fire Stick since last summer.  You need to have a service which hides the ISP in Spain

There are several free ones on the internet, although paid ones are a little more secure.

Further  information on installation & use is available from the respondent

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
