During her many years in Spain, Sally has moved several times, bought property, sold property, let out an apartment to tourists and currently rents an apartment. She says: "20 years as an expat have taught me many things and given me wonderful experiences, laughter, tears, friends and a very tolerant view of life. I have never regretted it, even in difficult times. I cannot imagine living any differently. I don’t think Brexit will stop people seeking a home in the sun, in fact it may make them all the more determined to find one."
So, you think you might like to live in Spain, but you’re not sure. It’s a big step. Maybe it would be easier not to move to Spain? On the other hand, it’s been your dream for a while… All of these thoughts went through the mind of our writer in Spain, but she went anyway. Fifteen years later, why does Sally think you should join her there?
The great thing about Spain is that there are many types of places to live: mountain chalets, beach apartments, city lofts, fishermen’s cottages, villas, urbanisations, golf courses and resort-type developments. There really is something for everyone. We recently looked at property on golf courses, and this week we take a look at life in a resort.
There are so many reasons to buy a home in Spain – wonderful climate, great way of life, the cuisine, the people and all-year-round sport, in particular, golf. Spain has a total of 398 golf courses on the mainland, 23 in the Balearic Islands and 24 in the Canary Islands.
Let’s look on the bright side as we start what will be an exciting year for many of us. A year when we might buy a holiday home in Spain or enjoy that long-awaited and planned for retirement in the sun.
For many of us, a holiday home or move to Spain is all about spending more quality time with family. But what the toddlers will love may bore teenagers to tears, and those of us retiring will want entertainment all year. So here we take a look at some 5 seaside locations that are fun for all the family!
