It’s easy to see why British expats move to Spain. The cost of living in cheaper, the weather is sunnier, warmer and drier for long periods, beer is massively cheaper and it’s generally a more relaxed and healthier lifestyle than the UK offers.
Having looked at stats that compared the two countries cost of living I stumbled across the below info-graphic created by www.spanish-property-sales.net who are property brokers in the Costa Blanca coastal regions of Moraira and Javea.
There are certain things that cost more when living in Spain such as junk food (and drink), mobile/internet and branded clothes. So chavs, don’t move to Spain!
For the rest of us, the proposition of moving to a sunnier and healthier lifestyle is an attractive one, especially for those retired.
