Hello!

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of research on moving to Spain for early retirement. We have lived in America all our lives, but are ready to leave and experience something new. My sister recently moved to Spain and loves it. We are also considering France, but Spain is calling a bit more strongly.

My husband has Luxembourg citizenship (although he has never lived there), so we wouldn't have as many residency headaches as an EU citizen + spouse, as we would if he didn't have that passport.

Some of the things that are of particular interest to us are healthcare coverage/insurance, renting vs. buying, and care of the elderly since we may bring my mother with us and she's getting older (as we all are). I'm learning a lot from reading these message boards. Thank you all!

I think that may depend on what you like doing, how you want to spend your time in Spain and what kind of place you want to live in. You say not touristy, but does that mean you don't want to be near the coast? Do you want the south of Spain or another region? Do you speak Spanish because out of touristy areas finding English speakers to socialise with could be problematic...
Post a thread on the main Spain page with more details and see if people have any ideas

Default Great Escape

Hello everyone,

Me, my missus and little toddler are desperately wanting to escape the constant grim, grey and never ending wet weather here in Manchester and to be our own bosses, live a healthier lifestyle etc (the usual) . . .

We have been to a lot of places in Spain as we travelled around in our converted van for 9 months when the baby was born. We really liked everywhere we went tbh but we especially like Catalonia and Valencia. We are getting the ferry to Bilbao this Saturday then we will travel across to Catalonia to view some land. It is our dream to set up a rural/eco/glamping business (like so many others - I know!) and keep hearing how difficult it will be and especially in Catalonia However despite all of this we are determined to overcome all of the obstacles (and negative comments) and be successful. I can obtain an Irish passport if my Grandad can find his birth certificate which should help ) I've done a lot of research over the last few years and believe anything is possible if you work hard enough and get to know the right people . .

P.S if anyone who lives in Southern Catalonia or Western Aragon is up for a chat from the start of March we would love to speak to you when we come over and take any much needed advice/info!

Hasta luego,
Matt

Red face Moving to Valencia

Hola! We are planning to move to Spain this summer. Preferably in June, so we can get things done before August, when everyone goes on holiday!

We are from Oregon in the US and are looking forward to warm weather and walking everywhere!

My husband, myself, our 16 year old daughter and 14 year old son will be moving. Hopefully when we get there, we can meet up.

Erica

Smile On our way to Spain

Hi

Hubby and I are in the middle of planning our early retirement to Spain Autumn this year. We have talked about it on and off for the last five years or more but with Brexit even closer now is the time. Hubby retired last year and I work part time now for the NHS. Our spare time is either dodging the wind and rain in the UK or researching travel options for our dog, private healthcare, tax system, banking, places to live, driving.....all of which we have found endless information on through this forum - thank you. It's going to be a busy 6 months but looking forward to it.
