10 Reasons to Move to Spain

Why would you want to buy a property in Spain? The question should rather be why wouldn’t you! Here are 10 reasons that will have you grabbing your passport and saying farewell to your relatives in no time.

1. Great Food

Tapas, paella, chorizo, pisto, patatas bravas, croquettes… is there any end to the culinary wonders of this Mediterranean nation?

2. Sunshine

There’s a reason why people talk about sunny Spain. The country’s Mediterranean coastline enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year.

3. Al Fresco Lifestyle

With all that sunshine, it’s no surprise that much of life in Spain takes place outside, whether that’s on the beach, in the park or on the terrace with a glass of something.

4. Cost of Living

Compared to many parts of Europe, Spain is a very reasonable place to live so you can enjoy all the best things in life, from food and drink to entertainment.

5. Great Wine

There are 2.9 million acres of vineyards in Spain, so if you like a glass of Rioja, Tempranillo or Albariño then you’ll be very happy here.

6. Fiestas

If there’s one nation that knows how to party it’s the Spanish. From the crazy, messy La Tomatina to Seville’s April Fair, there’s always a fiesta happening somewhere.

7. Healthcare

In 2000 the World Health Organisation listed Spain as being 7th in the world, with modern hospitals and skilled medical staff.

8. Great Transport

Whether you’re travelling internally, within Europe or further afield it really is very easy indeed to get from one place to another if you’re based in Spain.

9. Golf Courses

The Costa del Sol isn’t also signposted as the Costa del Golf for no reason, there is an abundance of golf courses located between Malaga and Sotogrande – perfect for all abilities from pay and play to Championship venues. Some of which that have hosted events such as the Ryder Cup and HSBC world matchplay.

10. Stunning Beaches

With more than 5,000 miles of coastline, you’re bound to find dozens of beaches that suit you, from private alcoves to surf spots and family friendly strips.
