For those of us who choose to live in rural parts of Spain, it’s nice to know there are a few places to get that ‘little bit of Britain’.

Baza has no English shops, few english products in the supermarkets and nowhere to buy an English newspaper…  bliss!!  However just over an hours drive from Baza is the Almeria coast and a town called Vera.  Here you’ll find a large ICELAND, great for stocking up on those items that you just can’t live without:

  • Tetley tea bags
  • Chicken crisps
  • Twiglets
  • Marmite

OK, your  list might not be the same as mine but you get the idea.  Take several coolboxes in the back of the car and after spending some time shopping cross the road from the car park and visit ‘The Chippy’ for traditional fish and chips.  Graham and Mandy cook everything fresh, the chips are real potatoes and the battered sausage is delicious.

Sitting in the car (albeit with the air conditioner on) eating chips out of a bag is a little bit of heaven.

The Chippy is open monday to saturday from 12.30 to 9.00.


About Living in rural Spain

I live in Andalucía in the beautiful southern part of Spain. It is the largest of the 17 regions of Spain and Andalucía is broken down into 8 provinces and I live in the province of Granada. Having lived here for more than a decade I call Spain my home. I am originally from England. I find the scenery here in Spain stunning. There are amazing sunsets and the colours of wild flowers, almond blossom and poppy fields in the Spring and trees in the area are an inspiration.
