Regards Michael.

Hi folks

We are returning to Corralejo in April after a great holiday there last year. It was one of the most chilled holidays we have ever had.

From the freedom of the beach to the great bars and places to eat. To say we're looking forward to our return is an understatement. This forum is certainly a help in getting others recommendations.

Hi all, been a member for a few months now but just been reading up, for advice. My names Colin, myself and my wife are buying in Corralejo with the intention of moving there in the next few years. Will be great to meet up with people, make new friends and pick people's brains :) Coming over this month for 11 days, pity it's not a one way trip :)

We are a couple of retired frenchies.
We came several times in Fuerteventura and we are looking for a property on the island.
Not sure where exactly yet , house or flat Corralejo or Caleta de Fuste ?
Your advice is welcome.
We also wonder whether the island is lively and busy in winter ?
Fuerteventura is not well known in france, is there a french "community"  ?

Hi, my name is Myles and I'm a regular visitor to the island, along with my partner Trish. We've usually stayed in Corralejo, most recently in March, but decided to try out El Cotillo for our next trip in September.

Thanks for a very useful forum!

Welcome Mylo

Lived there for 3/4 months, sure you will love it, though very different from Corallejo.

Hi everyone,

new to the forum and very grateful for all the helpful information available here! Will probably be posting some topics looking for advice/info specific to my situation as our Fuerte property hunt continues soon, but thought I should do the polite thing and introduce myself beforehand!  ;)

Welcome to the forum and good luck with the property hunt, my advice is take your time and remember that you need to add 10% to purchase price for additional costs

Hi there
We’d like to introduce ourselves at this very exciting time for us.
Hi all  :D

We are purchasing our holiday home in Caleta De Fuste.

We entend to use it as a holiday home at first then in about 5 years or so, will be living there full time.

We are finding it a bit of a mind field, if we rent it out a few times a year, how we go about the tax laws, we wondered if you could advise us on what to do in this situation.  :o

Does anyone have any advise for us please?
Thank you

Welcome to the forum Jaguar. A bit more detail about your implied situation would probably get more replies on the general forum

Hello everyone my wife Helen and I and our cat are moving permanently to Fuerteventura in August this year, its been a long slog getting organised in Scotland, selling the house and buying in FV but we are getting there and can't wait for the big move happening very soon. Been on the forum for a few months now and posted a few questions which are always answered pretty swiftly, I shall carry on using the forum on the lead up to our move and when we are resident.

Cheers the noo
Willie

Hi Willie, Helen and un-named cat,. Welcome to the forum. Might have been useful to say whereabouts you are moving to in the island, as people in that area would be very helpful in the early days.

Hope your move goes smoothly and best wishes for a very happy future in Fuerteventura.

Tom.

PS. Bad news for the cat, not so many mice out here!!

Welcome Willie Helen and Cooper. He (Cooper) can amuse himself being a cat with a few cockroaches. There aren't that many but enough to amuse 9 out of 10 cats !!!!
