There are some lovely properties in Cabrera BUT...... you should definitely take great care to consult with a knowledgeable, local solicitor as regards the ongoing legal situation regarding the infrastructure for the area up there.  Also remember that there are no services ( shops, bank, doctor, public transport etc) . Whilst this may not present a problem for you at the current time,  it's wise to think of the future and to realise that if your needs do change, reselling to relocate somewhere closer to services/facilities may prove problematical ( given the legal situation regarding infrastructure).

Also you are limited to 90 days in 180 unless you can get a visa or have EU passports - if you or your partner have an EU parent or grandparent then now is the time for a passport from that country- in Ireland there is 2 years+ waiting list to process applications

Hi Paul & Jen

in answer to your question, it is beautiful and lovely to live in Cabrera, either part or full time, of course depending on your circumstances (finances, intentions, etc). It has a great community, much more pan-European than it used to be with many owners from Belgium, France, Holland, Germany, as well as from Sweden and more recently Czech, as well of many British. It has a good cafe/bar/restaurant, as well as the very well known Riad Cabrera/Fatimas restaurant, a tennis court and petanque courts, amazing views & sunsets, and loads of walking (albeit up & down!). True there are ongoing infrastructure issues (since 1993!), which are well known, but properties still appear to sell relatively quickly. Whatever you buy, ensure you get good independent legal advice. Good luck

Hi all

Hope to move to España in about 3 years time to retire, I have an EU passport and my wife is British. Like the look of Albox, arborleas but noticed many properties have fly screens. Is it a big problem ( do you get eaten alive) or is it maybe better by the coast
