"simple" as the saying goes.. bolt hole in UK from hot summer sun and extended visits to uk, purchase a holiday lodge rather than a caravan
T :cool:
Why are you asking people to email you then?:confused::)

I'm still not sure what you mean. Its horses for courses, what ever suits you. We have a flat in the UK which we can use when we go back. I know others who just sold up everything and never go back. And others that go back regularly and stay with friends

You have to decide what you want Terry, If I were you I'd come over to Spain a few times and have a look, its a big country and you need to find and area that will suit you and perhaps rent for a while here???????? But I wouldnt do anything "final" like buying or selling until you know for sure its what you want and of course, house prices in Spain are still falling... so you have time.....

BTW, Spain is bloody cold in the winter, I'm already starting to feel the cold and getting the heaters, duvets, hotwater bottles, rugs etc out ready!! I was scraping ice off my windscreen last winter!

Hi Jo - Thanks for the info that's exactly what I have heard. People tell me they are Too hot in high summer and too cold in winter depends where they are exactly I suppose.. Hence interest in a UK bolt hole for these times also I'd like to maintain something in the UK "just in case"
Friends have told me where I can purchase a Holiday lodge with all facilities that can be used for 11months of the year in Cornwall - interesting

ps There are some grumpy B******s on this forum ! :eek:

Honestly they arent grumpy Terry .... but sometimes posters (incuding myself and others on here!!) write something that seems clear to them but may not be clear to others reading it ..... :D Its a friendly welcoming place most of the time!

Hey, we love everyone Terry!!! I didnt understand your initial post, but I'm blonde and incredibly stupid LOL Welcome to the forum et al, nice to meet you!

Bottom line, I wouldnt buy anything in Spain at the mo cos property prices are falling, I think you shyould rent "ad hoc". So when you get sick of the UK and its climate, then come and rent in Spain for a few months. When you get sick of Spain then go back to good old Blighty... until such times as the market has leveled out and you know what bit of Spain is for you!!!??

Bah
Humbug
I dont believe it
It beggers belief
etc etc etc

Thats got that out of my system.

The lodges sound as if they are on caravan sites .... I know a few near Evesham and the owners have to vacate for a month every year because the licencing doesnt allow them to be permanent residences.

But ... to be honest, they arent always that cheap from what I saw. After all, you can buy a two bed flat as a bolt hole in a reasonable leafy suburb of Birmingham for £60k at the moment .... I dont mean you should buy in Birmingham ... just an example
