Welcome to the SOL INFO SERVICE pages in Spain!
Аs follows from the title, our goal is to provide our readers with the objective and useful information about living in Spain, in particular, in one of the most special, wonderful and our favourite place – Costa del Sol.
A lot has been written about Spain. Wonderful beaches, sunny skies, passion of flamenco and flavours of Rioja – this image is well known and experienced by many around the world. But it is not all sun and sangria that is so enjoyable during a short holiday when everything seems exciting and new. Moving permanently to this beautiful but still foreign country is quite a different experience.
When you realise that the holiday is not about to end in two weeks time, and there is no chance of snow even for Christmas, the priorities start to change. Instead of considering a very important issue like where do go out for dinner you find yourself more preoccupied with the issue of having your telephone line connected – finally! – after numerous discussions with a salesperson who simply does not seem to … care…
Guess what? We have been there! Some years ago we decided to move to Costa del Sol – fist for a year, and then we thought we would see how it goes. We have been gathering bits and pieces of information from all available resources – internet forums, magazines, local newspaper, from friends and friends’s friends and to put these pieces together to complete the enormous puzzle called “Living in Costa del Sol”. And we are still going!
And now, based on our own experiences, sometimes positive, sometimes not, we have created this travel guide about settling into the life on the coast. We hope that our very subjective opinions and very personal recommendations will be useful to those who consider the possibility of moving to Spain and will help you to find your own place – a very cosy and relaxing place – under this bright blue sky!
