Hi everybody, thanks for letting me join the forum, much appreciated. My wife and I are looking to relocate to the Albox - Arboleas area next year (after the brexit shambles is over) from our home in the SW of France. We're attracted by the warmer winters (we currently temporarIy relocate to the Algarve for a couple of months when it gets cold) and the proximity of the beaches. Only concerns we have are illegal builds and being out on a limb away from any fellow Brits. Any helpful info would be appreciated. Thank you.

Jack

Lol, well you won't be far from British expats in either place.

Illegality of property is still a problem. Be careful as estate agents will tell you what you want to hear. 

You will certainly get warmer winters although inland it does get cold. You will be 40 minutes away from the coast.

Good luck in you search.

Thanks Jack, estate agents appear to be the same the world over 😀

Hi PeteT

I would be really interested in how things progress with your property search , I too have concerns re illegally built properties 

My husband and I  are in a similar position to you and your wife. We live in the Centre region in France and plan  to move  to the Albox/ Arboleas region next year. We are planning a visit during November to do a bit of research - we will post our findings on our return

Hi pete

We have already bought a property in Albox but not out perminantly until next year. Albox is a lovely town plenty of expats plus everything you would need to make life better.

Hi I'm learning using Duolingo, which I used to learn French.  It's a free app and really good.
