You probably already know that when people flock to Europe, Spain is the most chosen destination. And that’s no surprise, of course, as it simply seems to have what people want. An overabundance of sunshine, history, diverse countryside, criminally hip cities and a natural cuisine (not to mention wine) that all goes into a melting pot of irresistibility that has been Spain’s mainstay for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Ask the Romans: they’ll agree.
And, being in the top ten healthcare on the planet, low housing costs, seasides hugging much of the country, simply being part of the EU and – best of all – around 350 sunny days per year, Spain is a beguiling elixer, to be sure. But how can you make the big switch and settle there? Thousands ask this very same question, every year.
If you’re a European, that answer is easy: simply buy or build a residence there. But what if you’re not? Well, you can certainly rent there, and sometimes for long periods of up to 90 days in a calendar year which is glorious enough as it is, but what if you want to stay longer? (Read here for an interesting workaround.)
