Re: Where to move to Andalucia for 6 months?

It's for 2018 :-) I rented the house in Granada for Sept -Dec 2018. Now we are looking for a place for summer 2018, June-Aug. On top of all the locations suggested in the thread already, my wife is also researching Jimena de la Frontera. For summer we want to avoid the Mediterranean coast. My kids l...

Re: Where to move to Andalucia for 6 months?

We finally decided to spend a couple of months this summer in a village or town setting, then to move to the Albaicin in Granada for the beginning of the school year. We just rented a house there. We are still searching for the right villag...

Re: Where to move to Andalucia for 6 months?

Many thanks to all for all the great feedback. My wife and I are right now considering the cultural choice between village, small town and larger city. Gordon's post was very appealing. Geographically, we are looking at the coastal area S of Grenada, as well as the hillier/ more mountainous areas in...

Re: Where to move to Andalucia for 6 months?

As for more suggestions as to where to live I'm with Sid when he suggests that you give more information. Are you hoping to work while you are in Spain or are you just going to have a laid back vacation ? There are many houses to rent and quite cheap if you keep clear of the hotspots but it really ...

Re: Where to move to Andalucia for 6 months?

Re: Where to move to Andalucia for 6 months?

Thanks very much for all the responses so far! I notice most feedback focused on the school system. On that, to reply to some of the questions in the thread: * we are not coming for summer, but July-Jan, so for a whole 1/2 school year; * we hold dual EU passports and have no problem legally relocati...

First post - long-time lurker on the forum. My wife and I are planning to move to Andalucia with our then 13-year-old boy in summer 2018 for 6 months, half a school year. We are US Midwesterners, and our purpose is to expose our boy to a different culture - he will go to a local school. We are tryin...
