- The weather
Just about all regions in Spain experience wonderful weather almost all year round, but offer the best temperatures look at the towns of the Costa Blanca, Costa Calida, and Costa de Sol. These regions experience around 300 days of sunshine out of every year, typically, you will not see snow, and continuous days of rainfall are very rare. It can be said, the weather is what makes Spain such a popular holiday and property investment destination. Ask any expat why they chose to move from the UK to Spain, and the weather is always near the top of their list!
- Cost of living
Although the cost of living in Spain rose quite considerably during the last decade, it is still relatively cheap compared to most European countries. Eating out is something that can be enjoyed often; particularly if you stick to the restaurants and bars frequented by locals.
- The lifestyle
The lifestyle in Spain is much more laid back and relaxed than in many parts of the UK. The pace of living is slower and if you have suffered from stress caused by a hectic job and lifestyle, moving to Spain is something you should definitely consider.
- Property prices
After the property bubble burst in the Spanish real estate market during 2008, house prices began to plummet. They have continued to fall until 2012, and while 2013 prices seemed quite stable, house prices in 2014 are beginning to slowly rise. Buying a property in 2014 is a great investment because you can expect this rise to continue and your property should be worth considerably more if you hang onto it for two or three years.

- Easy access
In many cases, people would love to relocate to another country, but never do so, as they do not want to be parted from their family and UK friends for prolonged periods. With cheap flights provided by companies such as Ryanair and EasyJet, travelling to and from the UK is a simple process that will not cost you a fortune. Spanish airports are being continually updated and modernised, and just about all UK airports are easily accessible from Spain. The most accessible areas are the Costa del Sol and Alicante with numerous flights in and out of the UK each day.
