We are looking for a location fairly close to the sea, with shops and resturants close by. Also we would like close links to public transport.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
The list of places could be endless, you really need to come for a two week holiday, hire a car and choose for yourself. Public transport in Spain is good and cheap too.
Some places close to the coast, the prices haven't fallen too much and if anything may have risen slightly. One place near me, Nerja, it is still fairly expensive to buy, whereas other places not as pretty as Nerja are cheaper. There are bargains wherever you choose, but being here is better than thinking from the UK
