If you’re planning to relocate to Spain, it pays to do your research.
The Costa del Sol is a big and varied place, so you need to know exactly where you want to be before you take the plunge.
Before you make the move, check out local websites to find out what’s going on, what opportunities are available and what area suits you best. View our Area Guides to get an introduction to some of the Coasts better known locations.
However, nothing beats actually being here and experiencing the areas for yourself. We recommend a preliminary visit, touring various areas, to get a feel for them and to narrow down your options. A great way of doing this is by visiting the Costa del Sol for a holiday first. Renting a holiday property for a week or so not only enables you to do some research and get a feel for the area, but you get to relax and maybe a tan too!
Once you are based here and making yourself at home in rented accommodation, it is also much easier to look for the perfect property to buy. Being “on the ground” you can search online and in person, get to know the local agents and go and visit properties for sale. By living here you can take your time and get the best bargain in the right area.
