Depends what you are looking for, there are areas very hot in summer and cool in winter on the costas in the south, wether a lot more like England in the north. House prices are very low now, and plenty available on the costas as they overbuilt and just can't sell. Plenty of expats still living in the costas, but can be very quiet in winter without the tourists. I would sugest you do a lot of internet searching, and if you do decide to move, find a rental property first and have a real good look round before deciding to buy, and ALWAYS get good advice from a reliable solicitor, do not use the one the agents suggest.

Hi Danda

Welcome to BE.

I would definitely recommend you check out our Spain forum, where you can chat with ex pats already living in Spain - they will be able to tell you just about anything you want to know.
You will find this forum by clicking the 'forum index' tab at the top left of this page, Scroll down the list of countries until you see the title of Europe, double click on Spain below that and you're in.

All the best whether you stay in Oz or decide on Spain - but have fun on the forums whilst you make that decision

Dread - x
