The number of people moving to the big cities is growing more and more in Spain, it is a fact! However, today we want to propose some good reasons why life in the town becomes the best alternative.
Social life: a big family
In a society led to individualism so characteristic in large cities (long distances by car, large areas lacking close customer service, tiny homes designed for one person, etc.) life in the town resurfaces.
Living in a town guarantees you a knowledge of the area and the people who inhabit it. In this way, you have more facility to establish a circle of trust with the people of your day to day. Customer service in health services, shops and leisure spaces can be closer.
In addition, thanks to the proximity of your contacts due to the size of the town, organizing group entertainment activities is simple. Your security and that of your home are also better thanks to the support of your community of neighbors (that is, of the whole town!).
Economy: a relief for your pocket
While money is not everything, we cannot miss the many economic benefits of living in the town. On the one hand, there is a saving in taxes, transport (you can travel on foot or by bicycle to all parts) and leisure activities. On the other hand, the chances of finding your dream home at a good price increase due to the diversity of supply and lower demand (apartments, villas, cottages, stately homes, etc.).
Quality of life: being happy seems simple
Distance from large cities to the town is a success when what is sought is to eliminate stress and gain quality of life. The slowest pace of the town is related to its proximity to nature: spaces to enjoy outdoor activities and greater freedom for children on the street. In addition, for those with pets it is especially rewarding. The air quality is better and, in many occasions, also the gastronomy. In the region of La Vega Baja del Segura and Costa Blanca Sur it is usual to plant fruit trees -especially citrus fruits- for own consumption.
Today, thanks to the latest technologies that are allowing the digital nomadism (distance work) of many professionals, job opportunities are no longer a problem in rural areas.
