Reading what many on here have replied to my posting is that Spain is a very nice place to live.
lol we came nearly 8 years ago to a town we knew well, which we initially found by doing just what Domino suggested - driving down the coast til we found somewhere we fancied

when we came to live here we thought we knew exactly the area of the town we wanted to live in & rented - and nearly bought - there

by halfway through the second winter we realised what a dreadful mistake it was - too far away from everything & way too cold in winter!!

it took us a few more years to work out exactly what part of town suited our needs best & moved to that area about 3 years ago

finally - nearly 8 years of renting later remember - we are actually again seriously considering buying

So refreshing , to actually find out some honest truths , about other people's experiences , thanks !
Where I live , we have a system of legally-protected lease , where the landlord can't kick you out over the first 9 years - and if he tried , between lawyers , the courts and his massive legal costs , another few years would go by ( much better for the behaving tennant , than the U.K. law ) ;
but my 11 years have gone by in the same comfy and spacious place and I'm moving , what a struggle and a headache , for someone 60+ !
People , beware of your material posessions , they really can burden you , no matter how attractive they might have appeared , then + who-knows-when .
