Default Useful Web Sites

In the course of developing a web site, I’ve stumbled across a number of sites aimed at British expats, covering Spain or focussing on an area or town, which have been very useful in terms of providing ideas and information. I thought it might be useful to have one thread which provided a resource for people who are thinking of visiting Spain or purchasing a place and/or moving out, and want to see whats available. Here’s a few to start with.

What other ones have you found?

Hi Paul_C

I think you have an excellent idea there a resourse that can be accessed by all for information for people who want to move out here or who are already here all in the one place.

Also thanks for putting my site up there "Vinalopo News"

No Costa Azahar & North Costa Blanca is where we live but I think I've exhausted all the sites now. Wherever you live however, there is always some topic of interest and you learn as you go along. Things that happened to us wouldn't be found on a forum anyway. Lets just say beware of so called friends!!!

I run my own site concentrating on the Costa Blanca. It's fairly new but growing fast and has useful articles on Spain in general and not just the Costa Blanca.

If anyone in my area would like to help by adding content i.e. restaurant tips or useful tips for your town, I would love to hear from you.

Looks like a good site Mark, very informative.

The above site is managed by me (in the above post) and the same goes for me - if anyone has any interesting and useful info re the Costa de la Luz then don't hesitate to contact me.

May contact you soon about a link exchange Mark

www.valencia-expats.com is a new board aimed at the expat community on the Costa Blanca and la Comunidad Valenciana.

No relation to the previous 'valencia expats' board though.

Good to see a Valencia expats board up and running again.
