Diary of an Estate Agent in Vejer

Go Back

Relocating or retiring to Vejer de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz

I just had a beer with Wendy and Paul, two retired teacher friends of mine from Cumbria, UK. They bought a flat in Vejer on an off-plan basis in 2004 for 80.000euros. The apartment is in the new town of Vejer with three bedrooms and a small balcony and their sons and grandson come to visit them here. Before buying in Vejer they had visited and considered various locations in Southern Spain but chose Vejer because they liked the “Moorish Architecture” around the town,the friendly and laid-back residents, the reasonably priced property ,the proximity to the coast (Paul is a keen fisherman),and the huge expanse of completely unspoilt countryside. They spend around 5 months a year here and commented that living expenses here, especially council /rates and food, are significantly cheaper than in the UK. They are taking Spanish lessons, have bought a Citroen van (although Paul thinks it is a car but it really is a van) that does 78 mpg on long journeys and they like to goo off on little trips, most recently to Portugal. They have English and Spanish friends here and both love the town.
