Spain’s Costa Blanca is the favoured destination of many Brits looking for bargain to move overseas in search of a different way of life. Have you ever thought about doing the same? Perhaps you have wondered why so many people choose this over other places. In the following post, we will give you 5 great reasons why you should consider the leap abroad.
This is perhaps the most obvious reason, but still worth mentioning. Costa Blanca is famous for its amazing climate. It is thought to be one of the best in mainland Europe. Obviously, in winter it still gets cold, it is not nearly as bad as it gets in the UK.
First Class Health Care
Another great reason, that you may not have heard before, is the fact that Spain’s health care is considered one of the best in the world. Not only that but the Spanish diet is thought to be one of the healthiest in the world. The Mediterranean diet was first conceived in Spain and offers the highest life expectancy in Europe at an average of 82 years. Thanks to the salty sea air, the sunshine and the diet, Spain is the perfect place to live for people who suffer from heart-related problems, arthritis, rheumatism and asthma.
Warm and Friendly Locals
The Spanish people are known to be very welcoming, warm and kind. This can make it much easier for ex-pats to fit in, compared to other places where it is harder for foreigners to fit in. They are incredibly extrovert and laughter is as highly valued as the family is.
Popular Language Spoke The World Over
Spanish is one of the most spoken languages in the world, with around 450 million people speaking it. It has a very beautiful and poetic sound and feel to it. Although there are many people in the Costa Blanca that speak English, the locals will admire and appreciate your efforts to learn the local language.
The Delicious Food
Last but not least, we come to what is probably one of the most popular reasons for moving to Spain – the food. You will find some of the very best of everything in Spain. Be it olive oil, fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and not forgetting wine. Costa Blanca, and Spain in general, has it all. There are many different bars and restaurants to put your palate to the test with. Spain is home of course to tapas, which means you can have little tastes of new and exciting flavour and ingredient combinations. A visit to one of the local markets is a good way to try some new food and ingredients while practising your new language at the same time.
It is worth noting that the above is not an exhaustive list by any means and there are many other great reasons to move to Spain’s Costa Blanca. With villas and apartments being low priced at the moment, with the right amount of planning and research, the move to Costa Blanca could be a move worth making.
