What town/village would you move to if you could?

Postby jaycey001 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 10:33 am

Hi All

Been a long time reader but havnt posted before - great selection of forums!

We have a nice little cave house in Galera (Huescar) which we use as often as possible - we being me and my partner and two young children.
Our eldest is at a boarding school which she loves and in a few years our youngest will also be joining her so we are thinking of making a more permanent move out to Spain.

We really like Galera, my wife probably more so than me, it caters for everything we could need and we have a few friends living locally.
We have visited allot of the local towns and I am not sure whether to buy a larger family home in Galera of move to another town.

So .... to all of you that have lived in Spain for a while, what town/village would you move to if you had the choice?

Our only real criteria are walking distance to a few shops and a bar and maybe a communal pool.

I would am interested to hear your opinions, and it will help to form a basis for our next property search :)

Many thanks

Where you like to live is a very personal thing, I think.

Torrox was the first place we ever came to in Spain and we've never found anywhere else we'd like to move to. Many years ago when wanting to move (due to the building boom that ruined our hillside) we did look around the whole of Andalucia but never found anywhere else, so went to France for a few years instead! We returned to Torrox as we missed it so much and cannot see ourselves moving away from this area.

Stay in Granada province, for me it will always be the most beautiful area...

Anywhere near Puerto Mazarron, no need for pool as the bay is great, nice marina, and check out the house prices up here in Murcia!

Big city, lots of history with Roman amphitheatre and Naval museum etc. Not keen on big city living, but plenty villages and small towns around, incuding some on the route of a single-track train.
