Hello, my wife and I want to move to toledo next year. Any recomendations about neighborhoods? We are both freelance workers so all we are looking for is a nice, quiet, safe zone with good internet conection haha :) I guess we won't buy a car for a while so we'll need a supermarket nearby.

I have family and friends in Madrid but it's expensive to live and I'm kind of tired of big cities.

Thanks in advance :)

Hello, I meant Toledo city ;)

Thanks!
OK, it's just that you said you were tired of big cities. :)

As I recall the old historic part is on a hill on one side of the Tagus, though there are some residential areas down towards the river. The other side of the river is flat and is where most people live. The public transport is excellent.

I've only spent a few days there so I'm not really qualified to comment, but hopefully someone else will come along with more to offer.

PS you shouldn't have any problems with internet, as the city is served with fibre optic cable.

if you are an Argentine national, as your flag suggests, have you checked out which visa you might qualify for (and applied) ?

without one, you will only be able to stay up to 90 days in 180

which two nationalities?

You might want to change your 'from' flag to show the most relevant to your situation with regard to living in Spain ;)

your Spanish nationality obviously means that you can easily move here, which you wouldn't be able to do if you didn't have that

I believe you would be considered a 'returning Spaniard'

Look for posts by AllHeart - she is from Canada but through 'inherited' Spanish nationality she has now moved here

Hi, I have lived 10kms from Toledo for about 3 years and I find it a very safe city. There are 2 excellent shopping centres, one in an area called Bargas and the other in the poligono, both areas have excellent housing coupled with good facilities and schools. The casco is very pretty and river walks are excellent but not for the faint hearted but public transport is excellent. I am very happy in this area and will probably pop my clogs here.

No, we lived there for a month but it's not very convenient for everyday stuff so we moved to Santa Barbara (near the Train Station). We can walk to the Casco (15 min and take the escalators or take a bus. :)
