Want To Retire to Spain? 3 Locations to Consider

Thinking about a retirement home in Spain? Unsure of which location to choose? We sympathise. Spain offers an embarrassment of riches to Brits chasing the sun and relaxation. Your choice will come down to what kind of retirement lifestyle you envisage. Do you want a home minutes from the sea? Or are you looking for the buzz and resources a city can offer?

Schepens has long been a popular provider of removals for people retiring to Spain. As a consequence we now have many movers happily settled in locations across the length and breadth of the country. We asked some of them what advice they give to people planning to retire to Spain but not yet sure where to live.

1. Alicante – For Retirees That Want it all!

Looking for beautiful beaches, but also want to remain plugged in to urban life? Alicante is the place for you. It’s on the Costa Blanca, and has to be on of the most glorious of Spain’s locations. Everything is on your doorstep, superb beaches, great places to eat, and plenty of shops. City life is a blend of invigorating stimulation, and laid-back, beachside chill.

2. The Healthiest Climate in the World – Javea

If you suffer from respiratory problems or asthma, Javea is certainly a destination to think about. The World Health Organisation believes that its low humidity (due to the presence of numerous salt lakes) is what makes it so healthy. Javea isn’t a huge town, but it’s absolutely stunning, with a population from around the world. And its location – at the foot of the Montgo Massif mountains – means that it’s never too hot.

3. Marbella for Good Food and Quiet Winters

Marbella is a wonderful place to live, and it’s home to the best food I’ve ever eaten, anywhere. It’s also a hugely popular tourist destination – in the summer. Lots of people get a bit sniffy about this influx, but for me the trade off is that I get the restaurants, old town, beaches and mountains, pretty much to myself during the winter!
