What do I need to know about living in Ronda?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ronda, they said:

"Ronda, is a popular destination for expats due to its rich history, stunning landscapes, and warm climate. Before retiring in Ronda, it's important to understand the cost of living, which is generally lower than in many other European countries, but can vary depending on lifestyle and personal needs. Expats should also be aware of the healthcare system in Spain. While the country has a high standard of healthcare, it's essential to have a comprehensive health insurance plan, especially for those with pre-existing conditions. Language can be a barrier for some expats, as while English is spoken in many tourist areas, the primary language in Ronda is Spanish. Taking Spanish lessons or using language learning apps can be beneficial. Understanding the tax system in Spain is crucial for expats. Spain has a double taxation agreement with many countries, which means you won't have to pay tax in two countries. However, it's recommended to seek advice from a financial advisor familiar with both your home country's tax system and Spain's. The property market in Ronda offers a range of options, from apartments in the city to country homes. It's advisable to rent first before deciding to buy, to get a feel for the area and understand the local property market. Spain has a warm climate, but it can get quite hot in the summer, especially in the southern regions. It's important to prepare for this, particularly if you're not used to such temperatures. Finally, integrating into the local community and understanding Spanish customs and traditions can greatly enhance your experience. Joining local clubs or groups, participating in community events, and learning about the local cuisine are all ways to immerse yourself in the Spanish culture," said one expat in Ronda.
