Whereas that'd do me for 3-4 years.How long is a piece of string?
Is your 22,000€ net or gross?
Will you be living in the city?
The answer is.......IT ALL DEPENDS!!! Your understanding of "comfortable" may well be very different from someone else.
For me, I would struggle to live comfortably on that figure, but I'm sure there will be those who would disagree. It is a question only you will be able to answer, once you have lived here a while.
It's a lot more than most of my Spanish friends earn.. But then most British immigrants wouldn't like to be living in a small piso in the town centre in a not very attractive apartment block...or in a rundown campo finca.22k net is a lot more than most people in Murcia earn. With no rent or mortgage, you should be fine.
We've spent a lot more now we both work at the dog rescue perrera. We run two cars as we don't always go at the same day or time and always take dog treats with us for the shelter dogs, sometimes cooked rice and chicken. Then there's our own two dogs...
Fuel bills have doubled to over 120 euros a month for the two cars. WE couldn't have done that on a tight budget.
But it's our choice, the way we want to live here. That's why it's very difficult to tell people what it will cost to live here.
So many variables - size and location of house/flat, lifestyle, exchange rate....and then things you don't expect, both bad like repairs, dental work, and good, like our decision to work for an animal charity plus my involvement in local political life, none of which I anticipated when we arrived here nine years ago
As our capacity for arithmetic.Assuming that the 22,000€ is after tax (and that is a big assumption), what you appear to be saying is that you can live "comfortably" on 460€ to 610€ a month.
Clearly, our ideas of "comfortable" are very different!!!!!!
Gus said 3-4 years so taking the more optimistic route 3 years is 7.333€ per year or 611€ per month. The OP said there would be no rent or mortgage and providing there is no extravagant lifestyle and the accommodation is in an inland village, that would be do-able.ahhh but gus said it would last him four years.....
I know exactely what I meant and my maths skills are fine.......sadly it appears your reading/comprehension skills are in need of a little attention.As our capacity for arithmetic.
22k a year according to my calculator gives 1833 euros monthly.
I expect you meant 460 euros a week.

Well that's your problem then isn't it? There are those of us who aren't profligate spenders who can live "comfortably" on that sort of figure. Obviously there are those who are wasters not only of money but also the world's resources who might have difficulty in just about managing rather that living comfortably on 20k€ per week let alone per annum.Is "do-able" ..........comfortable?
My point for highlighting the figure 460€ to 610€ a month is that there will be folk reading this in the UK (or elsewhere) and think they can live "comfortably" in Spain on that sort of income. I'm pleased that gus can live on this figure....but I would suggest that there are many (including me) who can't.
