I thought it would be a good time to compare the prices of different things before the EU vote as to whether we stay in or leave Europe. Then next year when I come over I will compare to see if there has been any change, either in a rise or decline. We are being bombarded by figures but I do think the general feeling is that they don’t really know what will happen if we leave.
You can still get a small beer or a glass of wine for €1 in some places.
There are Chinese cheap shops here now but the prices are not as low as poundland in UK. In Benidorm there is a €1 shop for trinkets and Spanish souvenirs.
A three course Chinese meal with a drink is €6
Holidays within Spain are very reasonable, with many bargains.
Tapas is still €1 for small dish and you can get a menu del dire for €7.
House prices have now started to rise very slowly but there are still reposetion bargains to be had if your in the right place at the right time as they do go very quickly.
It takes between €1,000 & €2,000 for bills and fees a year, obviously the more you are there then the bills will be higher also the more people. (Very rough estimate)
Different areas alters the price of property so make sure it has everything you need. You often see a lovely villa with pool and land but it is out near the mountains so you need a car to do everything from shopping, beach, attractions, bars and restaurants.
