Living in Spain
The most popular destinations for people looking for property for sale in Spain are in the popular coastal resorts, particularly around Alicante and the Costa Blanca; Murcia; Málaga and the Costa del Sol. Many people retire to Spain but others start businesses involving their new properties such as running a hotel or owning a vineyard or farm. Spain is a country of many contrasts with regions ranging from the green countryside and mountains in the north, the vibrant coastal areas, rural inland regions, and the islands such as Ibiza, Mallorca, Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Spain has a great climate with hot summers and mild winters, except for the mountain regions and some inland areas which will be cold and snowy throughout the winter. It is a passionate country, particularly for its football teams, and enjoys vibrant, noisy fiestas throughout the year. Fiestas include theSevilla Feria with flamenco taking pride of place, sombre Easter processions in the major cities, bull-running in Pamplona, Malaga film festival and fallas fiesta in Valencia, when giant statues satirising politicians and superstars are burnt to the ground.
Transport in Spain
Public transport in Spain is great with fast trains linking the major cities as well as cheap regional train services. The road network is also very good with toll roads and motorways running along the coast from the border with France in the north through theCosta Brava, Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and around to Gibraltar as well as major roads heading to Madrid, in the centre of Spain. The major cities and resorts also have airports with thousands of international and national flights every day. From the major airports such as Barcelona, Madrid and Alicante, there are links with the major cities throughout Europe and and transatlantic flights to North, Central and South America.
Spain has a rich, long and fascinating history from its time as a great world power, its importance in the world of art and architecture, and its enormous impact in sports such as football and tennis. It is a fascinating and very diverse country, which explains why it appeals to so many foreign residents and investors. Spain has a fantastic night-life, particularly on the party island of Ibiza and the major cities of Barcelona and Madrid. The country also has a growing reputation for its gastronomy, with award-winning chefs and more than 100 restaurants with Michelin stars. The Basque country, Galicia and Catalonia are particularly renowned for their fine cuisine. Fish straight from the boats, shellfish, suckling pig, lamb and the symbolic Spanish dish of paella are among the main attractions in the country’s cuisine. Spain is a fantastic sporting nation which, many argue, plays the most attractive football in the world.
The country is also the birthplace of great golfers such as Seve Ballesteros (Cantabria), tennis players like Rafa Nadal (Mallorca) and F1 stars like Fernando Alonso (Asturias). Shoppers will love the variety of places to visit from large malls to bustling open-air markets and Spanish fashion stores such as Zara or shoe-makers like Camper and Panama Jack. The country also has a long and impressive culture with stunning architecture and natural beauty as well as being an inspiration for a wealth of artists and writers such as Dali, Picasso,Gaudi, Federico Garcia Lorca, Cervantes and Salzillo.
