Living the Spanish dream
Why would you want to buy a property in Spain? The question should rather be why wouldn’t you! Here are 10 reasons that will have you grabbing your passport and saying farewell to your relatives in no time.
Tapas, paella, chorizo, pisto, patatas bravas, croquettes... is there any end to the culinary wonders of this Mediterranean nation?
There’s a reason why people talk about sunny Spain. The country’s Mediterranean coastline enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year.
Cost of living
Compared to many parts of Europe, Spain is a very reasonable place to live so you can enjoy all the best things in life, from food and drink to entertainment.
Al fresco lifestyle
With all that sunshine, it’s no surprise that much of life in Spain takes place outside, whether that’s on the beach, in the park or on the terrace with a glass of something.
There are 2.9 million acres of vineyards in Spain, so if you like a glass of Rioja, Tempranillo or Albariño then you’ll be very happy here.
If there’s one nation that knows how to party it’s the Spanish. From the crazy, messy La Tomatina to Seville’s April Fair, there’s always a fiesta happening somewhere.
In 2000 the World Health Organisation listedSpain as being 7th in the world, with modern hospitals and skilled medical staff.
Yes, it might feel strange to start with, but once you get used to taking it easy in the heat of the day and staying up later in the evening, you’ll love it.
Whether you’re travelling internally, withinEurope or further afield it really is very easy indeed to get from one place to another if you’re based in Spain.
With more than 5,000 miles of coastline, you’re bound to find dozens of beaches that suit you, from private alcoves to surf spots and family friendly strips.
