Guide retiring Spain - Retiring to Spain, retirement Spain from the UK

What does the idea of retiring in Spain mean to you?

Are you considering moving to Spain?

Moving to Spain offers an idyllic climate, fabulous food, outstanding natural beauty, warm and welcoming people and an exceptionally low cost of living... if you've ever been to Spain, you'll know that it's all of these... and more!

Moving to Spain "almost as perfect an environment as it is possible to obtain" acknowledges the World Health Organisation. It is not surprising that many people consider a permanent relocation to Spain, especially for retirement. And while it feels like a very big decision, if you explore the facts with us you'll soon discover that for your health, wealth and lifestyle, moving to Spain actually makes perfect sense. Far from 'cutting yourself off from friends and family, you'll be giving them a very special place to visit, which will enrich their lives as well as your own.

Retiring toSpain is becoming ever more accessible. Regular services from all main UK airports, low-cost fares and more frequent flights mean that travelling to Spain can be quicker, easier and cheaper than reaching many parts of the UK by train facilitating retiring to Spain.

Retiring to Spain and getting around in Spain is also a trouble free affair. Brand new motorways join all the major Spanish cities together so that driving to and from the UK has never been easier.

Retirement in Spain can be hopping over to mainland Europe via ferry or Eurotunnel and then driving through France and Spain is a cost-effective and fun alternative to flying. Whether making a short journey to the local shops, visiting the beach or a theme park, all areas are well serviced by taxis and buses. If you are looking to explore farther afield, reasonably priced car rental is always available locally.

Lifestyle
Anyone who has ever been to the Spanish Mediterranean will know the lifestyle to be relaxed and unhurried. The character of the people who live there, for whom life is definitely for living, more than matches the warm, bright climate.


Moving to Spain means life comes alive when the sun sets. A wide variety of lively social activities are available, associated both with the strong international community and with the local population. Over the years, thousands of British people have settled in Spain, opening restaurants, clubs and other businesses.

If you are looking at retiring to Spain, the warm weather and easy lifestyle makes the Mediterranean Costas the perfect setting.

Moving to Spain means a pleasantly mild winter, the Spanish Costas never get cold in the way that British people understand the word, while Summers are glorious - easing the aches and pains of stiff joints earned by years in colder, wetter climates. The Costas benefit from more than 300 days of sunshine every year.

For generations, Spanish families have enjoyed unspoilt beaches, stunning scenery and a gentle pace of life - and this same lifestyle is now readily available to overseas buyers.

You'll notice the difference even in the mundane, day-to-day routine of life. Fruit and vegetables are perfectly fresh, locally grown and amazingly cheap... and they always seem tastier than British produce. Food, whether made at home or eaten in restaurants is more interesting and healthier. Best of all are the prices - restaurants that give you change out of £20 for a three-course meal with wine for two people are commonplace!

Substantial EU investment over the years mean that the infrastructure on the Costas is excellent. Sanitation is now superb, the beaches fly Blue Flags for cleanliness, the water is crystal clear, the roads are superb and public transport is excellent.
Put this all together and you have a perfect environment -just a few hours away. Your family and friends are only ever a half day's travel away and with air fares becoming easily affordable, the dream of a life in Spain is ever more achievable
