British expats in Spain say only ‘older’ Britons want Spain's ‘cheap booze’ and ‘sunshine'


For many British expats, southern Spain’s weather is still one of the primary reasons to relocate.

One expat said: “I am 65 and have been here for just over 15 years. The weather was definitely one of the reasons I chose to be in the south, when leaving the rainy, grey and cold North West of England where it was dark by 4pm in winter, the last thing I wanted was more of the same.

“But since we moved here permanently I have never sunbathed, I used to when we only used our Spanish house for holidays but never felt the need to when I was living here full time and never sat on a beach although I have walked along a few on occasions.”
