We are completing on our property on Le Cumbre in 4 weeks and will need to buy goods. We will need soft furnishings, bedding, kitchenware, bathroom accessories etc. (Oh and sofabed!)

Not sure where to start... 

Thanks in advance.

There is absolutely no point in bringing stuff from the UK when you can buy it in Spain.

OK, a few things may be cheaper in the UK, but others cheaper in Spain. Transport costs would wipe out any advantage.

Beds etc in Spain are European sizes and your UK bedding, although it will fit, won't be a match size wise.

White goods are about the same price and available from many outlets.

Coals to Newcastle comes to mind ...

Another point to bear in mind if you buy your electrical goods in Spain no need for adaptor plugs!

Thank you for your advice.

We are only thinking small items from the UK that we can fit in our estate.

It’s purely the smaller household goods I will be looking for, not white goods.

I’m guessing there will be an IKEA nearby.

Luckily the present owners are leaving all the white goods and large items so it’s purely the smaller items like kitchenware, towels, bedding I’m looking for. I was wondering if there was somewhere local to Benitachell that could be recommended.

There's absolutely no point taking any of that stuff to Spain.

Carrefour will have it all & 15 seconds of googling revealed that there's one about 5 minutes from Benitatxell.

Yes we’ve driven past that Carrefour and thought it food items. We will have to pay it a visit. Thank you

There is an IKEA in Murcia and an IKEA catalogue office in Habaneras

But there can be a point bringing it to Spain if you are driving over anyway.  If you have spare towels /bedding and cutlery in the UK etc etc.. it makes perfect sense to bring them from the UK.  We did...  Tidying up in the UK, saving money ...

Yes that is what we are thinking too.

Our kitchen cupboards in the UK are heaving!
