Popular CitiesWhere are you planning to move to?
Moving to Spain offers families the opportunity to experience to live in a vibrant, modern country with a well-developed infrastructure and a modern living environment. The Spanish way of life is both balanced and relaxed compared to other European countries, and benefits from a climate that makes social and outdoor life relaxed and laid back.
Many Spanish towns and cities have a great mix of both historic and modern architecture, which serves to enrich each area’s culture, making modern living in Spain one of the most inspiring experiences.
Spain is an extremely popular retirement destination for British expats because of its warm climate, low house prices and high standard of living. There is also a large and thriving expat business community in Spain, with many expatriates opening tourist facilities such as bars, cafes and nightclubs. So, wherever you chose to move to in Spain, you are always within easy reach of an expatriate community.
With a relaxed, laid-back, family orientated lifestyle, moving to Spain offers families a chance to experience a quieter and safer life-style, based around traditional family values. For those who are seeking this quiet life, there are still numerous coastal towns and inland villages that offer a wealth of opportunities.
With a cost of living similar to many other European countries, Spain offers a cost of living based on very much on your lifestyle and aspirations. If you seek luxury goods and fine dining you will find Spain very expensive, but if you are prepared to eat and live like the locals you will find your money goes a lot further here than it does at home. Housing and rental costs are reasonably priced in many areas, but are high in the cities and popular tourist areas. Utilities costs are high and can cost up to 20% more than the United Kingdom, especially in rural areas if bottled gas is required. However, food in Spain is relatively cheap, and offers a wealth of culinary delights.
