Well, I don’t agree. We spent one night in Olvera in May 2009, fell in love with the town and decided to buy a holiday home there. We found a house in March this year and we’ve had some work done to it to make it perfect for us. We’ve spent quite a lot of time there and have found the locals to be extremely friendly and helpful and always cheerful. The ex-pats we have come across seem to be mostly respectable middle aged couples but I guess you always get the odd rogue ex-pat ruining a town’s reputation.
Please don’t write the town off. Spend some time there and make your own mind up. The surrounding countryside is stunning, the restaurants serve good, very cheap food and the locals are welcoming and hospitable. What more do you want?
