I get the feeling that there are quite a few livable towns in Spain, for example Burgos, Leon (both very cold unfortunately) Bilbao, Salamanca ... Not too big, near the country, easy to get around.
I'm the same!" Thats why I like where I live. We're on the edge of a village and its peaceful (apart from the bloody dogs barking everywhere), we're 5 mins from a smallish town, Alhaurin de la Torre, but we're only 20 mins from Málaga City shoould we ever need the hustle and bustle! But for me, I like open spaces, countryside and peace and quiet. So its perfect for me - but not for everyone I guess!
