There are many ex pats who choose to live on the coastal areas of Spain, many in ‘gated’ communities with the security of English-speaking neighbours, doctors, shops etc.  Some ex pats prefer to know they have a ‘little Britain in the sun’.

For those of us who chose to live in the rural parts of Spain, whose neighbours are all Spanish and who are surrounded by non-English speaking people there is a certain charm.  That is until you have to see a doctor, get your car fixed, arrange a funeral or take an animal to the vet.  Unless you have been able to learn the language you often have to pay for a translator, if you can find one.

Living the dream and ‘living the dream in rural Spain’ can be 2 completely opposing options, but I hope my blog goes someway to share the reality, the charm, the benefits and the beauty of real Spanish living.
