Replacement double glazing patio doors

We are seriously considering having 2 of our patio doors replaced with effective sound proofing double glazed units. The rest of the house has shutters which cut out a lot of outside sound, but we prefer to keep these two patio doors free from shutters. Would appreciate any advice, recommendations, ...

Permission for erecting a covered pergola

Many years ago when we had a pergola built with a tiled roof, we were advised that we had to obtain an architects drawing, and to apply for a licence in advance. An inspection would then take place and we would be advised whether or not we were exceeding our permitted covered area. Failing to apply ...

Wedding bits and bobs

Partymania are currently awaiting delivery of stock so don't have a lot of wedding accessories - silver horseshoes, hearts, etc.

Is there anywhere else in Paphos that sells such items? I don't want to go to Jumbo's though......

Thanks in advance

Re: Recommendations please for Online purchases to Cyprus

One of the last items we ordered from Amazon DE was actually shipped from the supplier in the UK. It hasn't arrived yet but it will be interesting to discover whether or not we pay extra charges. We've just ordered some supplements from DE. It says "despatched by Amazon" so we shall see if we have t...

Having seen our village handymen blow stuff all over the place, I'll stick with my broom, dustpan/brush and bin bag!

Re: Kettles boiling over

Our kettle only boils over when it's being descaled with diluted vinegar. I put a small amount of vinegar in the kettle and then add about two cupfuls of water from the tap, then switch it on. If I forget to stand over it to switch it off as it reaches boiling point, then it boils over, but that's t...

Up until this last order we had been receiving packets through the post with no duty or VAT. We placed a large order two weeks ago with Healthspan to last at least 6 months. The duty and VAT came to €69.26. We will be ordering from Amazon DE in future. They do all of the supplements we regularly use...

Healthspan by Courier

We have been placing orders with Healthspan from Cyprus for the last 16 years. In recent years our orders have been despatched from Holland by post which have not attracted any import duty or additional VAT. In earlier years they did when they were despatched from Jersey. As a result of listening to...

Impressed with Amazon DE delivery

We've placed several orders with Amazon DE, paid standard delivery charges, and every one of them has been delivered via DHL within a matter of days, even part shipments.

Our last order had 4 items on it, each one of them delivered separately by DHL. Good service IMHO.

slimline dishwashers

Has anyone seen (or have) a slimline dishwasher purchased in Cyprus?

I thought I'd post on here first before trawling through the various stores in Paphos.

Thanks in advance

My OH has a special birthday coming up and we'd like to spend a night away at a nice hotel that caters for evening meals. Has anyone got recommendations?
