Getting Out And About
Spain has a coastline of approximately 3,000km of which around 1,000km are sandy beaches, many of these beaches including those of the Costa Blanca and Costa Cálida have been awarded the Blue Ribbon of Europe (Blue Flag) and the “Q” (for quality) flag, both of which are internationally recognized awards for the high standard of their upkeep and facilities such as clean non polluted water, well tended beaches, safety, good services and amenities etc.
Energy Of Life
Food and drink, well, Spain caters for every taste imaginable, it prides itself on good food and wine, “Paella” is served in as many varieties as there are cooks but forever tastes superb, “Tortilla Española” Spanish omlette made with potatoes is always a favourite or why not try “Lenguado” freshly caught sole, or, “Gambas” y “Mejillones” prawns and mussels?
Why not hire yourself a car - inexpensively, or use your own vehicle and discover this land of beauty and intrigue at your own leisure? an exceptional network of prioritized cycling lanes and routes are ever present so "getting on your bike" is a must, alternatively take a ticket and ride with one of the many comfortable and reliable coach or train services which offer numerous excursions and scenic destinations, locally, inland and along the coastline north and south of the region as well as national and international travel.
Lively indoor and outdoor markets offer a wonderful mouth watering variety of fresh fish, meats, poultry, vegetables and fruits that will delight every palate, while countless strings of cafes, “Tapas” (snacks) bars and restaurants provide a quality choice of world wide dishes that easily satisfy the most discerning tastes, many eateries now remain open for the total duration of 365 days a year, “the city never sleeps”.
In general food and drink is inexpensive to buy in Spain and learning the ropes of cooking the Spanish way will not take you long. A comprehensive range of Spanish and international wines can be found in a “Bodega” the local wine cellar, off-road vineyards are well worth investigating, the growing of grapes through to the wine making and selling process has not changed in years. If you request “Vino de la Casa” (house wine) in a restaurant, it may arrive in a “Porron” a triangular shaped bottle with a long, thin tapered spout from which you actually drink by tipping it down towards you from just above head height, the bottle is passed from guest to guest, hygienically of course and without touching anyone’s lips, so when you are ready and poised to drink, just be very careful where you aim the bottle, especially amongst good company. Sherry, which derives its name from the way the English importers pronounced Jerez, is produced only in the region around Jerez de la Frontera in the province of Cádiz (Costa de la Luz), Andalucia and is one of Spain’s most important products.
Grove upon grove of orange, lemon, olive and almond trees seem to line every countryside road and breathtaking Palm trees, Bougainvillea and Hibiscus thrive in this wonderful peninsula of mystique.
Spain - A Country Truly Blessed
By nature the people of Spain are very friendly, helpful and happy, their smiles and their kindness reflects genuine feelings, the openess of the family bond remains untarnished, taking care of each other is a way of life in Spain, children are loved, cherished and looked after endlessly and the “old folk” and the disabled just the same. Laughing together and celebrating life is the order of the day, whether it be during “Fiestas” parties and carnivals or religious "Inmaculada Concepcion" Virgen Maria and Moors and Christians street processions. Traditional Flamenco guitar players, singers and dancers can still be heard long into the the warm Iberian nights, suffice to say that the Spanish need no encouragement to fiesta - "¡Olé!" Bravo!
Spain is the third largest and most visited country in Europe, its rich history, culture and the arts of centuries past is still evident, the Baroque and Gothic style architecture, the Roman aqueducts and amphitheatres and the splendour of Moorish mosques, palaces and castles all remain as living proof of once present Italian and Arabic occupation. Many cathedrals, churches, monasteries, convents and museums that stand to this very day are truly magnificent reminders and evidence of Spanish religion past and present.
Cathedrals and churches of all types and denominations can be found throughout Spain and although many religions do currently exist still and are guaranteed by the Spanish Constitution, the Catholic faith is seen as the most important by the vast majority of the population and is therefore continuously worshipped and widely respected.
A Wonderful Privilege
Life in Spain is great, relaxing is second nature and as a tranquil homeowner you will have much more valuable time to yourself and more importantly, freedom from poor weather and needless, unwanted stress. We are pleased to inform you that the afternoon “Siesta” (nap) is still acknowledged as part of Spain’s culture. As a foreign national you will be able to spend the greater part of the year or just the holiday period in Spain, alternatively if you choose to become a full time Resident then your stay in Spain can be a permanent one, one that also entitles you to certain privileges and benefits like those of Spanish nationals.
Looking After Oneself
Medical care is always at hand, “Clinicas Centros” medical centres are generally open during weekdays, with a few remaining open throughout the night and also at weekends, a “Farmacia” pharmacy or chemist can usually be found close by and will possibly be of service as part of a 24 hour duty rota system as that of other European countries.
Torrevieja has two very modern and award winning hospitals, "Quirón" (formerly known as "San Jaime" Saint James) and “Hospital de Torrevieja”, both hospitals are well equipped with the latest state of the art medical technology and exceptional highly qualified multi-lingual medical staff, who offer first class private and public health care respectively.
