replied to the thread Where to live in Spain
on the Spain forum:
Just retired. Did Panama for a few months. Not a good fit.
Starting my research on Spain.
Will be living on a budget. Will be doing a single. Not crazy about the big city, but don't want to be isolated. Being close to the coast would be preferable. Cost of rentals and general cost of living. What kind of red tape to live in Spain. Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

Hi guys, we are also looking into moving to Spain. Can anyone tell us what the cost of a nice place on the water would cost average?
I am currently living in Las Tablas. Panama. After 7 months I am quite sure I dont fit in. European. Aged70 and living on a small pension. Needing the warmth I too am thinking of living in Spain. The coast might be more costly but it is also warmer in winter. I found the website of Kyero the best because they give, every time you look up a place where they have property , information about the climat per month.
That is why I try to find something near Almuñecar. Think of 1 year rent for 350 to 400 per month.
I leave Panama on june 30th. If you would like we could keep in contact. Wondering if you have found or decided anything?

Molly,by free school I take it you mean a public or state school.You will need to establish where you are living in Jerez first as it will depend on what post code you reside in for the school to accept your son.You can search for schools by searching "Colegios publicos en Jerez".As or rentals.Search "alquileres en Jerez" for rentals although you should probably consider a short term rental while you look for something long term after you have made a few acquaintances.
who can show you the local system.Good luck.
