Perhaps I can be of help if you're not sure where you'd like to be along Spain's coastline.  We've tried all the east/south Costas from Catalunya to Costa de la Luz and I can verify that Almeria is the warmest in the winter months.  We stayed on Mojacar Playa last winter and again this winter...we'll be back next winter, too.  We love it here because it's warm and sunny in the winter months with just 2 or 3 weeks of using our fan heater in the lounge in the evening.  We have never put the air-con on.  We also love it because it's not built up along the coastline and there are lots of villages and towns to visit if you want to explore.  It's a very pretty area. There are several really good rental agents here which you will find on the net.  As an example of prices, our place is costing us €600 a month for a 2-bed, 2 bath apartment, fully furnished, 100 metres from the sea with utilities charged at the going rate.  We found the cheapest rental area was the Costa Blanca South where we rented a 3-bed villa for only €400 a month.  It was OK but we found it colder there in the winter and, being so popluar with holiday makers, it is very built-up...which is great if you're hoping to meet lots of other Brits.

Many thanks for your replies, all very helpful.  Of course, you're right angeleyes...'There's no such thing as a free lunch', as the saying goes!

Looking to purchase a property in Spain, knowing we need a Spanish bank account and not wanting to pay banking charges if we can help it, we have been advised to go with ING Direct which doesn't charge a monthly fee or Direct Debit charge.  Does anyone use this bank?  If so, how do you find it compared to the usual Spanish Banks?  It certainly seems to be the one to go for....

Thank you all for your helpful advice.  We'll wait as long as possible to see if our EHICs will be valid.

Mariedav, we'll try Globelink.  Thank you for trying out costs for an older couple.  It was very kind of you.

Sorry!  I didn't notice /cholesterol jumping between the W and e of 'We'.  It should be after hypertension.  I couldn't see 'edit' when I sent the post!  Doh!
