Well I for one LOVE living in Spain.
Just being able to travel freely about without the stress of navigating the horrendous traffic or hunting out a place to park when one finally arrives at one’s destination unlike good old UK. Plus not forgetting the fact that it is a rare day one cannot go out because the weather is better.
I have never bought property with the thought of it being and investment but for a way of life and retiring to Spain was the best thing I ever did.
Would recommend it to anyone providing they avoid areas/developements where illegal builds appear to be the norm.
Every day is like being on holiday as far as I am concerned and have a fantastic social life, that doesn’t include the constant tipping of alcohol down my throat, with both the wonderful Spanish locals and expat community.
