Learning Spanish – Looking for a house

bigstock-Puzzle-Button-Do-you-speak-sp-79535224The Costa del Sol is one of the most amazing places to live and if you’re thinking of relocating we’d definitely encourage you to take the plunge. There’s so much to offer in terms of climate, lifestyle, sports, great food and more. We believe that you get the most out of living here by making an effort to learn the language and so we cover different useful vocabulary in our Learning Spanish blog posts.

When relocating to Spain, we would recommend that rather than buying straight away, that you start off by renting long term and then invest in a property of your own. This gives you time to be sure where you want to be and have checked out the lifestyle and all its pros and cons and know that you want the Costa del Sol to be your long term home.
