I appreciate your (and others) comments on their experiences with the health service in Spain, as it's something that I'd have to consider (not just for my partner, I'm none too young either) if buying property there. Thanks

From my own experience, Cortijo or Finca usually have or have had in the past had an agriculural connection.
I found the term Cortijo in fairly common use in Andalucia, while Finca is often used in other areas and the Canaries.
Casa more often than not has no agricultural connection.
Just my own view from what I've seen myself.

I agree with most of the comments regarding the high standard of treatment but a need for family or friends assistance in aftercare.
It never ceases to amaze me how they often manage such a large through-put of patients, under often difficult and crowded conditions, without compromising high standards, to the best of my knowledge and experience.

Right back to this 2 bed house for 70k,...just hope its not on an old riverbed or earthquake zone.

Generally the buildings in river beds are new. Therefore the price would be much higher than €70K

Not so much a mistake as not giving a damn

Reason for asking is I've found several cities in the north or east of England where this is possible. Surely it can be done in Spain too?

Edit: I wrote house meaning terraced house as regards the UK property, but a piso with 2 bedrooms would be quite acceptable
Hi I have not had time to read the answers - but from personal experience yes, you can. We have a 4 bedroom "terraced" inland, lovely village, no problems and brilliant neighbours (spanish) who cannot do enough for us.

p.m. me if you want areas etc.

Talking in regards to spain there is a deep recession taking place and property is just not selling. Letting is very difficult as well plus in addition to that taxes are high. One would have to pay 25% tax on gross rental income to start with.We have also experienced a growing trend by the Spanish towards racist remarks and actions.

Anyone thinking of coming to Spain please ignore these comments. In 10 years of being in Spain I have never come across one bigoted remark or action directed at any British person. I speak Spanish fluently, but with my kids I only speak English so outwardly I am clearly a foreigner.

In my time in Spain neither have I

The people I have come across who cry "racist" usually dont speak a word of Spanish and go through the world paranoid that Spanish people hate them.

Maybe I'm wrong in this case though, jinosbrovens, what exactly was your "racism" experience?

Maybe it's better to live in Spain as an expat and not to bother learning any Spanish at all. You'll never come across racism, will you?

And as for the racists? It must be galling for them to rant away at a foreigner who just smiles back and says, 'Grassy ass'.
