With family living in the Costa Del Sol for over 30 years, and myself having spent many a holiday visiting this part of Spain, my husband and I decided to buy a place here in 2015 – in a lovely, traditional Spanish village called Monda. I have tried to provide an insight into life in Spain, based on the experiences of my family and friends who live in this beautiful country. My Mother has lived in Spain for over 30 years and my Grandparents spent weeks touring Spain in the early 1970s on their way to explore North Africa.
Having found the process so different to buying and living in the UK, I felt some of the experiences were worth sharing. I have set up this blog to give an insight into the things I found out when buying in Spain, I hope others find this useful. Please note, this should not be used as a replacement for professional advice and it may well be, that since we bought in 2015 thing have changed. However, I hope there are some relevant topics in my blogs which help some people.
As the website has developed, I have added more blog posts about being an owner and living in Spain. As I love travelling and playing golf in Spain I have also added sections about this on the website.
Blogs I may write in the future related to living in Spain are listed below, however if there is an article you would like to see, then please do let me know.
- Differences between holiday and living
- Should I be a resident or not?
- Gibraltar – a taste of Britain in Spain
- Crossing the borders – France, Portugal, Gibraltar, Africa, Andorra
- Learning the language
The outdoor life is one of the things we love about Spain especially playing golf all year round and swimming in the warmer weather in our pool at Casa Goodwin
I love spending time in Casa Goodwin in Spain and look forward to the many months and years that we can enjoy our time here.
Salud for now
