Unfortunately not everyone wants to live a peasant lifestyle, and when your old bones start to tire you have to persuade your family to come and look after you if you want to continue living in your idyllic remote hillside village.
Quite agree, that's why I wouldn't take such a lifestyle on now, though I do try to strike a balance with a rural way of life and a nice selection of fresh produce in a manageable garden.
However for those a little younger in good health, it could be just the sort of satisfying challenge they are looking for.

well if I could buy land cheap enough I would be very happy to live in an airstream caravan on a lovely site, put a deck in front and a pool, so long as I had water and electricity, no problem, I grow my own food here in hastings, which isn't easy given the worstening summers. It'd be paradise for me.

To have electricity and permission for a water supply, be it a well or or public) your Airstream has to have permission to be on that site. ie an offical residence.
Well that is the theory at least.


PS: Do not forget about the sewage either!

Resurrecting this thread as yet another abandoned village becomes available here in Galicia.
This time it is free.
Village in Cortegada
Not a small project is it?

.......great - ive looked at some wonderful, deserted old villages and buildings in the last few weeks, its so tempting to buy in Spain esp. now but with the tax laws as they are (my business is property in England) I already pay tax here on my rentals and if i sell the CGT would be upon me - also the inheritance tax would hit my family when i pop my clogs - so add a spanish tax as well and - well, i just wouldnt do it. Love Spain, like my second home, but for me, it will always have to be to rent
