Someone who sells up in UK fed up with the weather could afford to buy in Spain. Particularly if they have a pension . It all depends upon lifestyle how little you need to live on – if you are used to paying council tax and TV licence in UK you will save money. If you don’t drive like walking and live somewhere near shops and facilities maybe have a bit of growing space . If you live near a beach fill up with sea water to flush your toilet and save the water bill -I do and its good exercise.If you have a rod there are fish in the sea too.
