as for torremolinos, I love the shopping especially cariheula, but a lot of problems there. I see both worlds Inland is much better, but I still want a change.
Ouch! I apologise unreservedly if my earlier comment caused offence, I in no way meant to imply that you cannot afford to live on the coast. Each to their own; personally from what I can see, the best thing about Cartama is the railway line going out of it, but certainly Torremolinos is no paradise either! I guess it all depends on what you are used to and what kind of environment you feel comfortable in, but my remark was only meant to substantiate your own, namely: why do so many elderly people choose remote villages, when inevitably there will come a time when this is not going to be suitable? Wouldn't be me.
