Re: Residencia requirements

Re: Looking to move to Andalucia

It doesnt rain much but when it rains boy does it rain. And something we never thought of before moving is the difference between inland and the coast interms of temps in the summer and winter and how much colder/hotter it can be inland in the winter and summer.Defo agree with above and rent first
