I am producing a guide to the best websites on Spain for friends and clients of Eco Vida. I would welcome suggestions. What is your favourite website? What websites do you recommend to family and friends who are travelling to or thinking of moving to Spain?

My categories (at the moment) are

·         Property Portals and Newsletters

·         Professional Advisors

·         Community (forums, expat sites, etc)

·         Hidden Jewels (favorite hotels, beaches, restaurants, beauty spots)

·         Fun Stuff

Any feedback would be really welcome.

Thank you so much.

Hi John

Here are my recommendations:

PortalsKyero.com is probably the best for English speakers.  Award winning website.  FotoCasa and idealista are Spanish portals but I think they are available in English too.  They are much bigger than Kyero in terms of traffic but more concentrated on the Spanish market.

Newsletters: Kyero do a weekly newsletter called "Property Pulse".  Covers all aspects of Spanish economy and real estate.  It's very good.  Obvously our own newsletter is excellent too. Spanish Property Insight have a great real estate related newsletter which comes out every month.   Spanish Fiestas have an interesting monthly newsletter on more travel and fiesta related subjects.

Community: Err, you're on the best forum here  !   There are user blogs here too.  There are many area specific forums around such as Almerimar Life and Manilva Life but too many to list really.

Travel: Spanish Airport Guide has loads of info on the different airports in Spain, very useful for any traveller.

NewsTypically Spanish is a great site to catch up on all the news from Spain.

I could be here all day listing good sites but those are my favourites.

Justin

Whoops!  I should read the forum rules!

They are all complimentary sites and always happy to recommend them. 

The reason it states that in the rules is because what often happens is that people set up a community website for a sub forum on the site and "steal" our hard worked for traffic, particularly for the communities.  I don't mind people setting up their own websites, just don't shout about it blatantly on here!

I don't mind competition, in fact competition is great...it keeps us on our toes.

Justin

Thanks Justin, there are some great ideas in there. Some of them I know about including, of course, yours and, having posted the same message on one or two other forums, I think the response from you speaks for itself. I would welcome ideas from anyone else and Justin once again thank you for your integrity. Warm regards. John

Best Websites on Spain??

Without a doubt ........EOS,EOS,EOS and EOS...and   the others Justin listed are worth a look.

"I don't mind competition, in fact competition is great...it keeps us on our toes"

That's easy to say Justin since you've just blown the rest of 'em right out of the water now that EOS is available in 50 languages..

 Gosh, I wish we'd known about your Baby Hire service last year when we had grandchildren staying. Do you hire out babies, too? I'd love one to play with for a little while then send back...
