Apparently there is a problem with the drainage or something. Also the road to Chiclana at the moment is horrendous. No surface on it at all in places.

Which new development - there are several proposed

Glynis is right - the road is painful at the moment - but Medina Sidonia will be very well connected when it is finished as the road to Vejer is pretty new and the newish dual carriageway from Jerez to Los Barrios passes close by.

We got some information when we last visited Medina Sedonia about major new developement which is going to be built at the base of the hill

This may be the one you are thinking of - proposed for the bottom of the hill on the Chiclana road side. The locals seem to think it is going to happen.

http://www.medinavillageresort.com/s..._andalucia.php

There is also another golf proposal for the bottom of the hill on the Vejer road side - I haven't seen a lot of info on that one. Plus there are two housing developments halfway through - one "out the back" on the edge of town on the road towards Paterna and one in the poligono area which is effectively a new town built on the flank of the hill - when coming from Chic it is the bit to the LHS

Its Sidonia by the way, not Sedonia.

Peter at http://www.andaluzhomes.com/ is probably a good person to ask what is happening and get a feel for the market, I think he is involved in marketing property for the villageresort proposal.

This is a useful site if you want to see the relative sizes and foreigner populations of towns across Andalucia

Unfortunately like the whole of Spain there is little work of a comparable nature to the UK.

this thread gives you an idea http://andalucia.com/forums/viewtopic-t8473.htm

In Medina and the Luz, assuming you only have a basic level of Spanish, you are limited to running a B&B, working (or running) an estate agents or anything else you can do to milk the other expat community - many builders, plumbers etc.

If you look at the back of the laluzmag.com or on mycadiz.biz you can see what a lot of the other Brits are up to.

If your Spanish is very good then you might head for Cadiz or Jerez where there are more companies and professional desk-type jobs.

I work remotely on the web, otherwise I'd be buggered.

I have often thought of opening an insurance agency here in Chiclana specifically aimed at the expats market. there are loads in Costa sol. I too was a financial adviser and district agent for the Pru and the Pearl so have good knowledge of general branch insurance.
