Home & Garden

Your room outside

PARTICULARLY in Tenerife, where the weather is generally very good, you should think of your outside space as an extra room in your home, one which you should be able to use for the best part of the year. While many of us may not have a garden, patios and terraces can still make wonderful […]

Your home in Tenerife

Buying a holiday home in Tenerife is often the culmination of hard work and dreams. A property abroad presents an opportunity to relax in a different climate, and increase leisure and family time. However, the cost of buying the property, and the attached expenses, are considerable, so furnishings need to be organised in a cost-effective […]

Keep your cool

Refurbishing your bathroom

WHETHER you have just bought a property, or have had it for some time and it is looking a bit tired, you may want to think about refurbishing the bathroom. If you want to stick to the same layout, the process can be relatively simple, because you may not need to move the plumbing. This […]
