Hi All (again), does anyone know if all the flooding issues have now been sorted? We are thinking about buying a home in Camposol so I am just trying to find out as much information as I can before we come to view properties for sale, is there any particular area that suffered the most in the past from flooding? Thank

Hello Mick,

You must visit Camposol to study the layout and the topography. Where there is a lot of rain, there will be flooding. Perhaps not on the scale of several years ago, but who knows. Look at properties at the bottom or near the bottom of slopes...they will get both running and standing flood water. Properties higher up slopes will get running rainwater and perhaps more damaging running underground water. You can see this best where roads start to crumble inwards as the subsoil is washed away Lots of it on C and D.

 Good Luck, there are still some fabulous properties to be had!

None of issues have been sorted. Still flood problems and lack of street lighting subsidence etc. 

But apparently only affects 1% of properties.............  (yeah right )

best go have a look yourself

Flooding issues are apparent wherever you buy a property.not only Camposol. Many small towns, big cities and villages have the same problem. 

Have all the flooding issues been solved in the UK?

Spanglish you must be piss bored with your life ...why you pretend you lived  on Camposol is worrying ..I think maybe you should get out more / get a life and so on and stop trying to put people off buying on Camposol not everyone wants to live in a Spanish village like yourself so let's just leave it at that as you are no longer wanted on this forum why don't you join a forum that is for that lovely village you live in with no problems good by.

Your opinion is that I am no longer wanted on this site. That’s a perfectly fare and reasonable thing, to have an opinion. And to have the platform to voice it! Again a good thing.

However  My opinion of camposol’s issues when people ask is not allowed. And my remaining  on the site called into question by you 😂

Seems like either you have god like status!

Or you just don’t want the negatives highlighted?

Regardless live and let live.  Answer questions if asked. State your opinion for others allow people to make informed decisions based on the information from many sources.  Almost like democracy........ is my modus operandi!!! 

Not unsupported personal attack’s and righteous views on who can and can’t have an opinion or belong to a site.

I get out plenty thanks and have a great life 😎  

I was even out having a boogie at the car park music show in camposol last night. 

Supporting local events and community. Would have asked you to dance if I had seen you 😉 

Sounds like you very uptight missable disenchanted and a tad aggressive 🙄 

Sure it’s not living on camposol that’s made you like that...... you were probably always a 🐄

Spanglish....you do not have a good word to say about Camposol ...as you said in the past you have only stayed I presume on holiday for 3 weeks on Camposol....so you basically know bugger all about the estate...you keep bringing up old news of the freak Gota Fria that hit Camposol and Mazarron 7 years back Gota Frias are common in Spain the whole of the  Costa Blanca was hit by one only a few months back with 4 foot deep of water in most of the roads any one would think reading you misleading post that it is only Camposol that suffers flooding this is not true anywhere in Spain can suffer from freak floods at any time...since Masa the builder's left the site we have seen massive improvements on the urbanisation with road repairs and so on ... if you have a need to run places down then you can start with the slum back street areas of Mazarron and the likes...as far as subsidence goes only a few houses on upper C are affected ... approximately 50 properties out of 5,000 reading your scathing post anyone would think the whole of Camposol was falling down...so as I said before why don't you get off this forum and join the one for that utopia you have found and leave us alone on Camposol.

Agree with FF, this forum would be better off without so many extremely negative and often inaccurate posts. By all means discuss past problems and events but keep them in perspective. There is a great deal of good about Camposol and its residents that should not be run down.

I will not enter the current slanging match because it does no-one any credit and a great deal of harm to Camposol. We are considering buying on Camposol. We have visted and taken a great deal of advice, so let me just give our considered personal conclusions;

1) Camposol is a largely British enclave, described as Milton Keynes in the sun.

2) If that is what you like, then enjoy it, because there are a lot of good things about it.

3) If you want genuine " la Espana vieja"....it is not for you.

4) The properties are excellent and very attractive, but low on insulation.

5) Only Sector A has been adopted by Mazzaron, all others are unadopted.

6) Properties on B, C and D do not have permission for habitation, therefore are technically illegal, but Campasol is not alone in this respect.

7) Flooding will always occur, as in most of Spain. You just have to ensure your property is not in a vulnerable position.

8) Subsidence will occur where there is flooding coupled with poor drainage and insufficient foundations. Sectors C and D are the most prone.

9) The voluntary organisations on Camposol are doing a brilliant job in covering for insufficiencies of local government service.

10) The facilities for entertainment and shopping on Camposol are very good.

11) Facit: You pays your money and you takes your choice: Camposol has a great deal to offer!
