I got the keys to my villa at the start of December 2015, after viewing properties in the September. I found a reliable estate agent and currency specialist in advance of my viewing trip, thanks to help from the guide and Resource Centre. I arranged to view six properties with a local agent – it was actually my first time ever in this part of the country! The second property I viewed was a villa that I’d already spotted online – I decided I wanted it as soon as I viewed it. Not long after, the sale of my three bedroom semi-detached property in Warwickshire went through, so everything fell into place for my move abroad.
