Hi Forumposters, Just wondering what effect there is on life in general due to the current economic situation. Are the Spanish people (who we've always found in the past to be nothing but friendly & helpful) resentful of seeing what may look like affluent foreigners (by maybe taking advantage of the cheap properties at the moment) in their country? We read in the UK about severe unemployment and would like opinions on any changes this might have. Are there any areas in particular that have become deserted through foreigners leaving? All comments/opinions will be welcome. Thanks, susisoo.
Hi, Shortly buying a property in Almeria and would like to buy some of the furniture/mirrors etc as antiques. Does anyone reccomend any auctions or shops where I can pick up either furniture or architectural salvage stuff? Would really appreciate any thoughts. Kind regards Susanne
Morning everyone.We are considering relocating from France to The Almeria region. Specifically around Mojacar.In your opinion What is the Best OR Worst about living in this area.We have visited this area quite a bit ,but realise that living here is different to holidaying here.Many thanks in advance for all your opinions.Sunsearchers.
I read a lot about the annoying fly problem that seems to affect the lives of many people living in Almeria. Some people even can't seem to enjoy living outside their homes any more because otherwise they will be eaten by flies and mosquito's. Almerimar seems to be a living nightmare but I read about people all over Almeria complaining about this nuisance. It seems to get worse over the years and the expanding agriculture (plasticulture) would be the one to blame. My question is if there are area's where the problem is worse and if there are area's where one can lead a normal outside life? After all that's why I would like to relocate to Spain. Thank you.
Hi, As a newbie to the Forum I hope I'm posting in the right place! Having lived in the Malaga province around 11 years ago & visited Almeria around 2007 we are looking to move to Almeria permanently. We realise that a lot of things have changed in Spain since we were there last and wondered if there's anything major we should be aware of. For instance, are Brits still welcome & are there any areas particularly noted as problem places. If anyone has advice - good, bad or general we'd love to hear it. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
