Why move to Spain?

There are currently roughly 300,000 British expats living in Spain, so what makes the country so popular? Spain boasts a beautiful climate, especially in the south, making it a tourist hotspot in the summer months. Not only is the country well known for its wonderful weather, but also it’s broad culinary scene, offering a wealth of traditional delicacies such as Spanish tapas and sangria. The relaxed pace of life and relatively cheap cost of living are also factors which draw expats into Spain, and is the ideal destination for those that seek a lifestyle which is a little more laid back.

According to a study conducted by Currencies Direct, Spain is topping the list of retirement hotspots for Brits that are looking to enjoy some sun in their sunset years. Despite this, the country’s allure is far but limited to pensioners, and rather ranks as a popular destination for younger generations. With plenty of entrepreneurial and innovative work opportunities it comes to no surprise that Britons favour this sun soaked country.

Where should I move to in Spain?

Spain has an abundance of beautiful locations to live. Whether you're looking for a location with excellent schools, a relaxed atmosphere or by a city centre, there is a neighbourhood for everyone. Here are some of the top locations in Spain:

  • Barcelona - Being the country’s capital, Barcelona boasts contemporary and traditional culture in various forms. Dotted with Antoni Gaudí's whimsical architecture and historical museums, the city has magnificent offerings for anyone. 
  • Seville - The gorgeous Andalusian city of Seville exaggerates romance with its meandering cobblestone streets. Seville is the pinnacle of traditional Spanish culture and tradition.
  • Madrid - Popular with tourists and expats alike, Madrid has a youthful ‘party-hard’ reputation. Complete with vibrant neighbourhoods and beautiful outdoor spaces, you will never find yourself bored here.
Removals quotes to Spain

Once you have decided to move to Spain, simply call our European Removals Department and arrange a free home survey. Throughout the Survey one of our moving consultants will visit you at your home to discuss your move to Spain. We will undertake a home survey of the items you are moving to Spain and prepare a free, no-obligation quote for you. This is also a good time to ask any questions that you may have about moving to Spain, such as packing services, transportation options and insurance cover.

Can I Move to Spain After Brexit?

You can still move to Spain after Brexit but you will now need to apply for a visa before doing so. This is similar to visiting non-EU countries such as the USA or Australia. You can still live, work and move in Spain as long as your visa has been approved. Make sure you know the terms and lengths of your visa before committing to a move abroad.
