Welcome, screencraft, we'll do what we can. Hope you'll become an active member.

 

Get a few posts and you'll have access to the VIP forum, where there's lots of good information in addition to all that (buried!) in the open forums.

Hi Everyone,
We have owned a villa on La Marina Urb since 2008 and have been a member on this forum since 2009. I have had some great replies to questions in the past which I am grateful for. Just wanted to announce our arrival on 13 Jan when we are making the permanent move to Spain. We hope to be able to meet some of you in due course.

We are originally from Scotland but I have spent most of my life in the Army and are currently living in Hampshire. It is kicking out time for me now as I am considered too old to serve now at 55. Not that I am complaining, I am ready to leave and we are both looking forward to our new life in Spain.

Hi. I have joined this last week and hopefully will be coming out beginning of April to look for a place in the sun.

Feeling a little bit nervous as it is a big adventure for me. Hoping to make new friends to make it feel not so daunting

Welcome, and I hope you find what you want.

 

Where are looking to buy - in a ghetto (oops!, Urb), in a town, or in the country.

 

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of it, if you've any questions you can't find an answer to by searching the forum, start a new topic.

Welcome.  Love our ghetto (oops! Urb)   Love the fact that I only have a few minutes walk to supermarkets, variety of bars and restaurants, where there´s plenty of things to do, dancing, crafts, exercise classes, etc.etc.etc without having to drive miles.

 

Love having lots of friends around that we can pop in to have a cuppa with or call on when in need and they´ll be at my door in minutes.

 

Love having a beautiful beach just 10 minutes down the road which I can cycle to.

 

Each to their own :)

Hope you enjoy your adventure. I spent over eight years in La Marina enjoying most of it and some I felt I didnt like. But one thing you will enjoy and that is because lots of people over here are retired, they have more time for you and you wi ll be offered time and help. Dont worry about that caustic comment by that Jim fellow. If you need any good advice you will find he will be the first person to give you the best answer,but he lives in wide open spaces and isnt keen on Urbs.

Hello.

 

Bought a Villa in La Marina Urb last year and visited 6-7 times already. Looking forward to many more holidays and hoping to retire there in years to come.
