WT, that format has been done to death. Maybe....just maybe, this program will show people that there's another alternative to burning your bridges and moving lock stock to a foreign country where you don't understand not just the language, but also the culture, local customs etc. Renting instead of buying, and staying just for the winter, could make a lot of sense for many people who were previously looking through rose tinted glasses at the idea of buying a place in the sun.

I wonder if the series will educate and forewarn of the legal implications to renting in Spain, such aspects (alongside other educative articles) as covered in the following website that Spanish Property Insight identified.

http://www.larrainnesbittabogados.com/article.php?id=58

Any series should be honest and realistic in its concept not only advising of the advantages but also the potential pitfalls that exist in 2017, so that renters can reflect upon the wider perspective prior to renting in Spain.

Why would the series as described touch on that? It's looking at the tenants' perspective, not the landlords'.

Forewarned is forearmed when it comes to ALL aspects associated with renting so surely any program that is associated with renting should be educative as well as "entertaining" if a success is to be made of "wintering abroad".

Hopefully any such series will be well balanced in its content giving a realistic perspective?

Roberto you are correct on what I suggested ...it has been done to death.... But I still see complete families including the dog coming over to Spain with no Job prospects scratching a living ....l often  wonder what are they running away from surely the part of the UK they come from is not that bad... some or them (just seem to look so poor) ....l am being polite... I don't want this post deleted

Unless I've completely misunderstood, I think this new series is looking for snowbirds who want to give their aching bones a break for 3 months, or young work-from-home professionals who fancy setting up their laptops on a terrace overlooking Puerto Banús for a couple of months - not losers from Jaywick with nothing left to lose, thinking their 16 kids (and the flea ridden dog) will have a better life in Spain because the booze & fags are cheaper. Neither of the former are likely to be particularly interested in the minutae of long term rental laws.

It's also fair to remember that these type of TV shows are relativity dirt cheap to make, no highly paid actors, no fancy sets and so  on, and as well when we who visit Spain more often then not might only speak to a few who have busted the dream so they are not a fair assumption of those who have made it and done well, of which I am sure their are many.

 I have even spoken to a few who thought Spain was going to be like the UK they left behind, I try to have very little to do with these types. Considering the rubbish that gets onto the TV these days under the name of entertainment some of these shows are not that bad.

Honest insight into another world..... Stimulate debate....

Quite a tall order but no doubt time will tell by the perspective they deliver.

A more objective TV program might be a debate about the most suitable countries for older European peoples to spend the winter in.

Spain is not in my opinion one of them except perhaps the Canary Islands. Spain can be very cold in the winter and properties can be freezing and damp to live in since most don't have insulation or proper heating systems. Many costal resorts are deserted and facilities reduced to a minimum.

Post Brexit British people will likely suffer the same restrictions on long staying as Florida, South Africa and Australia. Medical insurance costs are likely to rise for Spain if the EHIC is withdrawn.

I guess it depends on the Film companies target audience but to guarantee a perfect winter escape the Caribbean is in my view the best choice. It may cost a little more but will deliver a guaranteed warm winter.

And to back mickey up, if anyone has contacts for a two to three month stay in Barbados or Antigua from February through march 2018.   I for one would welcome the information.   

Guaranteed sun and fun.
