Spain is a really attractive proposition for a lot of people to move home and start again somewhere else. It is quite an ‘open’ country and people elsewhere in the EU can move easily, plus if you’re buying property your visa issues will be a lot easier. So which area of Spain are recommended for expats?
Barcelona – this isn’t a surprise, this is one of the most metropolitan and amazing cities in the whole of Europe, and if you want to be in a bustling hub of culture with opportunities as well as beautiful architecture, nightlife and more, then Barcelona could be for you. One of the main benefits of Barcelona is the fact that it is so close to the coast as well and if you want to soak up the sun at the beach then this is easy to get to from Barcelona.
Javea – buying a home in Javea is made a lot easier by their estate agents such as www.inmobiliariajavea.es, the area is very popular among expats and makes our list due to the fact it is a little bit slower paced and less busy than Barcelona or a big Spanish city whilst still offering plenty to do and see. The school system is great, the people are friendly and this is a great way to see authentic Spain.
There are other cities and areas to consider. Valencia is close to Javea and also has a lot going on, and Madrid is similar to Barcelona in terms of being a busy capital city. Settling into an expat community is relatively simple in Spain and there are lots of amazing areas for new homeowners.
