If you’re planning on relocating to Spain it is an exciting but daunting prospect, especially if you’re moving the whole family and have to worry about how kids and elderly relatives will cope. However, with the right preparation and planning the move can be made much easier and in our experience the stress and strain is soon forgotten when you’re sipping a cocktail on your terrace, or taking the kids to the beach to play every day.
There’s a really useful guide to moving to Spain with the family which can help you prepare for the big move which you can download for free. Prepared by a moving company it covers topics such as preparing the family for the move from an emotional and practical point of view, packing tips, advice on getting through the move day and then settling into your new home. It’s a really comprehensive guide of things to think about and do to make the move easier and better for all so is highly recommended.
We have also got loads of interesting and helpful information on our site about relocating to Spain, including a free guide to Spanish legal system which includes getting a Spanish will, becoming a resident and buying and selling property which you can download free of charge.
Remember, we’ve all made the move ourselves, as have thousands of others and so whilst it is stressful, the rewards of family life in Spain far outweigh the stress of the move itself. You will find that Spain offers a very family friendly environment which welcomes children almost everywhere you go and puts them at the centre of the community. The kids love it as they get to play outside, enjoy a healthier lifestyle full of sports and activities and be part of the family life no matter what is happening. Plus they get to learn a second language and the younger they are the easier it is!
