Spain is a renowned tourist destination and many people flock there every year to enjoy the Mediterranean sun, sea and sand. However, Spain is also a great place to live long term and Torrevieja is one of the most popular places to do so. In this guide, we will explore some of the reasons why Torrevieja is such a great place to live as well as what prices you can expect to pay for long term rentals. We will also provide some tips that are relevant for people moving there.

Torrevieja is located on the Costa Blanca in Spain and has a population of just over 100,000. The town is situated between two large salt lakes which give it a unique microclimate that is said to be beneficial for people suffering from respiratory problems. The climate in Torrevieja is typically Mediterranean with hot, dry summers and mild winters.

The cost of living in Spain is generally very reasonable and this is one of the main attractions for people looking to move there long term. Rent prices will depend on the size and location of the property but you can expect to pay around €700 per month for a one-bedroom apartment in the town centre. Prices are slightly higher if you want an apartment with a sea view but this is still very reasonable compared to other locations in Europe.

There are a few things to bear in mind when moving to Spain that are relevant for all expats. Firstly, it is important to learn at least some basic Spanish as this will make everyday life much easier. Secondly, Spain has a very relaxed lifestyle and things tend to move at a slower pace than in other countries. It is important to be patient and go with the flow to avoid getting frustrated. Finally, Spain is renowned for its bureaucracy so it is important to allow plenty of time when dealing with government institutions such as the town hall or tax office.

Overall, Torrevieja is an excellent place to live long term due to its great climate, reasonable prices and relaxed lifestyle. By following our tips, you can be sure that your transition to life in Spain will be smooth and enjoyable. ¡Buena suerte! (Good luck!)"
