I dont think the question of visa requirements was asked or being discussed at that point though

For 3-6 months Tarifa might work out better - cosmopolitan enough (for Cadiz province which is not the most cosmopolitan part of Spain) to be interesting, bound to be able to have broadband and possibly used to short-term furnished lets due to the windsurfing crowd.

Central Cadiz would be pretty good, especially in the old town - you wouldn't need to use the car much so parking whilst a pain wouldn't be terminal on a daily basis. Pick somewhere near the cathedral. I'd like to live in downtown Cadiz at some point, note that the spoken Spanish in Cadiz area can be a little "thick" to understand.

Thanks so much for all of the advice and info, that is great! We are going to try and check out some of these places in the next couple of days.

If you are hotelling I'd recommend the Hotel Argantonio HERE

Tarifa is very windy and much too touristy for my mind. At least Chiclana is a working town, so out of season it doesn´t "die". I asked if you were an Aussie as my son in law who lives here is a Kiwi and his neighbour is also an Aussie.

Yes, and there are lots of Australians who are also EU citizens as many of us have parents who were born there! I didn't realise having an EU passport meant that I was no longer an Australian, having been born there and lived there for my entire life up until 1 year ago!

Thanks for that, hmmmm, how windy are we talking here?

Cool, which part of Australia is he from? We're from Adelaide.

My query was that you said you was an Ozzy and they need visas for Spain, if you said you had dual nationality I wouldn`t have bothered to try and help an Ozzy.

It can be pretty windy down there as it is prime windsurfing territory - then again it can be pretty windy all the way up the coast to Cadiz - the are is well known for the Levante wind.

I guessed that there would be an easier opportunity for a short-term furnished let as they are used to people coming for a few months to windsurf.

But I did tell you, straight after you asked the question? Hmmm, might need to invest in some sort of mind reading apparatus around these parts!

OK, thanks for that, I really appreciate all of this advice, it is so hard moving to another country, I thought moving to the UK from Australia was hard but this is a whole new level!
We're going for a drive to Cadiz tomorrow to check it out and the surrounding areas.
