Wow best of luck. Soooo jealous!! Would love to know how you get on living there permanently so do post the details on here how its going. We hope to take early retirement eventually (still too young with mortgage to pay) so we can spend more time there. Out there next in September - cant wait. Lovely place and people. My Spanish neighbour and her family are lovely but would be nice to meet some expats so if you and your wife meet/make a group then interested in joining. There are a few expats in our village but they seem to keep themselves to themselves. Do you have friends/family there already?

Hi and a warm welcome to the Spanish forum on BE. I am the Concierge for the Spanish section and thought that you might find it helpful to know that the moderators for the Spanish forums are Fred James and Bevs, moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE.

Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderator who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are usually friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge of the issues of living in Spain. I hope that you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Sorry but they will not be able to do this as advertising is not allowed on the forum.

I am sure that they will be grateful for any local information that you are able to provide for them long before they are up and running especially any that help them with overcoming difficulties that only those living in the area know about.
