Lightbulb Almeria Area

Hi

Is there anybody out there from the Almeria areas, ie Albox, Arboleas district or any other?

My friend is looking to buy there as the properties seem so reasonable - can there be some catch??

Hi i live 20 mins from Albox and try to avoid it like the plague.There is also a lot of illegal builds and going through agents doesnt really protect you.Still there are lots of villages a short drive away that are still unspoilt and it is a lovely part of Spain i wouldnt be any where else.

Hola
I live 2 kms outside of Albox and have been here for just overa year now. I have to say that I really love living here. There are plenty of really nice Spanish bars around the town. Yes there are a lot of brits here and some of them are real rip off merchants mainly to other brits. But as with everything in life it is what you make it.We have a lovely casa in an area that has a good ratio of Spanish to English. I have neighbors who are both. But we do not live on an urbanisation. Albox is expanding all the time and we have a good selection of shops etc. We have lot's of friends both Spanish and English. We came here looking for a better way of life and we have found it. So my advice is to look around and make up your own mind. Good luck
