Default Good area to move to?

Hi all.
We are looking to move within the next month or so from Lanzarote.
Where, in your opinion, is a decent area to move to that’s within 10 miles (16km) of Gibraltar?
Thanks

eek! 10 miles doesn't give us much to play with does it? Skip straight through La Linea - it's a dump, and so is Algeciras.

Sotogrande is quite upmarket if you like toytown style of properties and don't mind spending lots of money.

Hmmm, now I'm stuck.

I had read that the Rinconcillos area of Algeciras wasn't that bad.

I have no doubt.
Coming from Norphuck I'm sure he's never far away from anywhere near water so he can flex those webbed feet of his.

Now that Gentlemens brain is in a jar in the USA as on death because of his genius it was preserved and hoped it would support various ideas about correlations in neuroanatomy with general or mathematical intelligence. Sooooooooooooooooo your Cranium is empty and that may explain the reason you rant and rave and swear because all that is between your ears is black sand from Lanza Grotty..........

Rant and rave!?
Sure you're reading my posts?
7 times I've made comments directed towards Norphuck Twat... sorry I mean rugbymatt. It rhymes so I naturally get confused.
Not one of them were rants or raves.

Well... maybe one of them.
But he does bring it upon himself.
Don't give unless you can receive.

Damn!
I must be clever if I've had my brain removed and can still communicate!

At the head of Algeciras Bay Rinconcillo is a little known fishing village that manages to remain unspoilt even though surrounded by industry. It also has one of the most fantastic sandy beaches on the coast and a stretch of protected sand dunes with a network of water channels behind forming a marismas. There is something for everybody here. The children can take to the dunes for a spot of dune jumping or they can scour the beach for the brightly coloured shells of all sorts of species that wash up here. Bird watchers can penetrate the marismas via a network of rough tracks and set themselves up in a bush overlooking a lagoon, where they will see any amount of waders and, if you are lucky, the resident ospreys and harriers. A walk to the end of the sand spit from Rinconcillo is about 2 kilometres and here you will reach the estuary of the Rio Guadacortes with, on the far bank, the fishing village of Las Palmones.

In the bay the constant water traffic in and out of Algeciras port is a spectacle in itself with the Rock towering up on the near horizon. Keep your eyes open for the gannets that dive for small fish just off the beach.

In Rinconcillo itself there is a large fish restaurant next to the car park that is a favourite with the Spanish on a Sunday. Alternatively you could visit Las Palmones that has a whole range of authentic Spanish seafood restaurants.

Sounds a bit of a yawn to live there I would guess, But OK to visit if you like steel and smoke.

If they bite I will feed.

How sweet.... looking on the net for me are you, boy?
Hanging out with drag artists?... well I've worked with one or two in my time.... and enjoyed doing so.
You sound rather homophobic from the tone of your opening sentance.

Who said I have failed at anything? Certainly not me! I first got paid to DJ in 1979 and continue to do so 30 years on! What a faliure!

My mother is very proud of me, thanks for asking!
She was over here a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed herself.

I will certainly bring "my crap" in here as long as I damn well please.
You do!
