We might be looking to move to an area in Spain with a bit more life and younger crowd. Not sure whether there are many 30-40 age expats in Cadiz but it seems like more would be in the cities.
Any thoughts?
Hi Qwertyjjj
You need to come to Chiclana, best beaches in Spain and very near Cadiz

What's an intercambio?
I had always assumed that Marbella was for rich yacht owning types and sons/daughters of footballers?!
Beach is not exactly a requirement for winter but yes I agree, Seville/Granada during the summer time would be too hot.

Not exactly. More like a base for Russian maffia and chavvy types from Essex who think they are living it large

But as long as you stay away from cr*ppy overpriced clubs and bars than Marbella is nothing more than a small, pleasant Spanish city with a nice coastline and a huge debt problem. There isnt very much upmarket about it any more. Cities like San Sebastian, Oviedo or the wealthy neighbourhoods of Barcelona and Madrid are way more upmarket.

Who knows, I dont hang around either. Although I have noticed that the Eastern European mafia drive a fleet of Mercedes CLs, maybe they got a bulk discount

Shame, they are a beautiful car

Not at all. You do get some of those types. But, behind it all, Marbella is just a pleasant Spanish town. Take a walk on the Paseo Maritimo on a Sunday afternoon and it's mostly young Spanish families with kids enjoying the day. I don't know what your budget is, but in this economy, it would be fairly easy to find a rental around the 500 Euro mark.
