    Having spent the last few months trawling the Internet for properties in Almeria I am now expanding my search to Granada and the Costa Tropical. I have come across quite a few nice looking properties in La Rabita, but they seem suspiciously cheap. Does anyone have any idea why this should be? Is there something wrong with the area? Any information would be welcome.

    As it happens I’m coming over to Almeria next month to look at a load of properties, but the main thrust of my trip is to narrow down where I like and where I don’t. Last time I was over in Spain I was just interested in having a nice holiday, rather than eying up property. πŸ˜‰

    πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Rabita, fine if you want to live amongst illiterates !! try the lovely Roquetas or Aguadulce – fancy promenades, ports and excellent infrastructure. Mojacar is lovely although more foreigners; Vera is good if you want to live near a huge nudist beach – mainly old fat bodies πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ Cabo de Gata national park is fantastic but no bank repos and rather posh – boho chic from north of Spain and Catalunya; also every second house owned by italians and French !!

    I remember reading something recently about La Rabita, because the funny name stuck in my mind. I can’t remember what it was, but I suspect it wasn’t very flattering.

    Might be cheap because it’s in the back of beyond surrounded by plastic green-houses. At a time like this a place like that had better be very cheap.

    @ UBEDA I don’t mind living among illiterates as I’m pretty anti social anyway. That’s one reason why I would never live in one of thoses apartment blocks. Too many people; too much noise.

    @ Mark I did wonder about those greenhouse things. I guess that I would just have to look and see.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Daryl, take no notice of Paul aka Ubeda’s banal comment about illiterates, after all he doesn’t even like living amongst the Spanish even though he lives and works in Spain, can’t work that one out πŸ˜‰ He is as Spanish as a pint of Guinness or fish and chips despite the name πŸ˜†

    illiterates, are some of the kindest, honest, simple people I have met on this planet they may not have the social skills & the artificial mannerism of the literates that we encounter on a daily basis.

    They are rough diamond that does not glitter and I am happy to share a beer or two with them & try and see the simple life through their prism.

    Absolutely true…but would you want to isolate yourself amongst them and have no communication with the rest of the population. Would wear a bit thin don’t you think πŸ™

    Well, I certainly won’ be eating fish and chips when I’m in Spain. I mean, I don’t even eat it when I’m in the UK.

    TBH, I’m looking for something that is quiet and away from people, so that I can work I peace. Considering that as yet I don’t speak or write Spanish, I am also one of the illiterates, so I should get on well with the locals. πŸ˜‰
