Hi,

I am interested in the best places for expats to live in the Tarragona area of Spain. If someone can point me in the direction of the right neighborhoods, I would greatly appreciate it.

My work is there. I would like to be near that. My son will attend either the French school in Reus or Sitges.

I lived in Valls, near Tarragona for an academic year. Admittedly it was a long time ago I was a lot younger, single, but I wouldn't recommend it. Too small, too Catalan, not very welcoming, but it may have changed.
Also, one thing about Tarragona city is that it gets terribly humid during the summer months. I met my OH in Tarragona so I have fond memories of the place, and he lived there for a few years. He would start to sweat around May and didn't stop until the end of September :eek:, and he's Spanish! Perhaps it's better if you're a bit inland.

Most kid/family friendly?

Hi Doug,
We are looking for a 'suburb' of Tarragona of about 25K people plus. We don't want a total expatville but would definitely like a strong community as expats have been the most welcoming thus far(We are learning but aren't fluent). We plan to settle so would like a place where there are kids yr-round. Oh yeah, we'd like to be as close to the beach as possible.:juggle:
Thanks, heather
