There aren't any!

However, ask any questions you like and I should be able to answer them for you.

(I live in Ontinyent which is not far from Xativa).

If you Google British builders Javea or British builders Xàbia you'll find some. They may or may not be any good, I have no idea.
A lot of people recommend using Spanish builders who know the local building methods and requirements better...
Hmmmm.

Not a lot of good when the OP is looking for a Builders yard / building supplier (as opposed to an actual builder)!

The second hit on my search is for a British builders yard.
It wouldn't be my first choice as there area lot more Spanish yards I presume, but if that's what he wants....

Thank you to everyone that has replied to my post - I am surprised at how helpful everyone is, I really appreciate it. Has anyone had experience of good English being spoken at any of the Spanish builders merchants in or nearby to Xativa?

See post #2


This is quite a rural part of Spain. As such, little English is spoken - mainly Valenciano and Spanish.

At our builder's merchant in Ontinyent, there is a lady who tries to speak English - she helps my Spanish (for technical words) and I try and help her English.


What do you need and what are you trying to do?


When all else fails, my wife is an interpreter and translator.

sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I may very well be asking your wife if she needs some interpreter work!!

I wandered if anyone could recommend an english speaking pool cleaner/maintenance person or company in Xativa? I am coming up with nothing on the web & am looking to employ someone regularly - any advice would be hugely appreciated! thanks!
