My aunt moved out there years ago. Some lovely little gaff with a Spanish community.

Cost of living is fuck all.

Was it an old show? seems very cheap, saying that property inland is much cheaper than the coast.

* and possibly finding out you don't actually own the property six months down the line from completion - eviction with menaces to soon follow

Jaen, andalucia

Tbh, I wouldn't touch Spain with a barge pole, but I'll mooch around Greek options

The problem with Greece is lack of and expensive flights out of season, plus it’s too far for a short weekend break and the weather in winter can be really cold. Also the Spanish health system is excellent and cost of living very reasonable. Each to their own though.

Aye, I don't disagree

Certainly drawbacks

Really couldn't believe what they got

It's on sky catch up anyway

Couple with 40 k budget

As the missus has pointed out to me many times, there are entire villages in Campania which have been abandoned and properties there can be as low as EUR10K.

Tempting but I remember past encounters with the Camorra so no thanks.

Spain's the place. Coppers with big fuck off batons and no hesitation is using them (as BWFC fans know) mean that it's generally peaceful and relatively crime free (you can find the Ruski mafia down in Puerto Banus if you look hard enough).

Smart ones know to be far enough away from 'ex-pats paradise' to enjoy authentic Spain but be within reach of a pint of bitter and fish and chips if the mood takes. Places like Alhaurin, Coin etc. Dos cervezas por favor.

I'm staying in Blighty, get my money's worth.

Snap. Tried the living abroad thing, hated it. Will stick to sunshine holidays a couple of weeks over winter.

I'm another who is looking at Spain  for later years. Love the place. Also south of France to be fair. Good these steals can still be found

I think there’s a few of us in that boat, the European tours alone must have added up to a pretty penny. Great waste of money though. :)

Always fancied Cyprus when I retire 

There are a dozen villages within each of the British Sovereign Bases.
