Hello, 

Myself and partner are considering buying a place in El Puerto de Santa Maria, where we would plan to run a guest house and cafe/bar. After a recent visit out of season we found it quite a charming working town with some good restaurants, a good food market, good location for Cadiz and Seville etc. But more affordable than somewhere like Vejer de la Frontera where we were originally considering.

Just wanted to get anyone's thoughts and opinions on El Puerto as a place to live . Any feedback gratefully appreciated!

Hi we have been spending aprox 4-8 months of the year in El Puerto for the past 4 years and would definitely recommend it for a place to live. It has everything, charm, history, lots of bars/restaurants, beautiful beaches and national parks and is still buzzing in the winter months. We love it, good luck wit your house hunt.

Hi, thanks for your reply....that's good to hear. I kind of got that impression but it's good to hear it reinforced from someone living there.

We have found a property and are moving forward with a purchase , so sometime after March next year will be there although we will have to rent somewhere for some months while our place is renovated . 

My partner is Spanish but I need lessons and I read your recommendations for a Spanish teacher and will look into contacting them when I'm there :-)
