Going back to the thread title…Why Relocate to Spain” I often wonder why many of the main defenders of Spain on here don’t do it 😕
Probably for economic reasons Katy. In my case I prefer France for cultural reasons, high life quality, and the personal space living in rural France provides.
Spain is a great country for those who enjoy vibrancy and an active social life like the last poster bentdavi. In the end it’s horses for courses but the poor economic circumstances currently prevailing in Spain need to be seriously considered before moving if you don’t have independent means.
Yes I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. If you like the rural (or just semi-rural) life then France does have quite a few advantages over Spain. If you like the city/social life then Barcelona and Madrid have more to offer, although if you need to earn a living in Spain most people are somewhat restricted to living in one of those two cities.
