I’m relocating to Jerez from The States in spring 2023. Hoping to find a community, however small, of English speaking expats (or natives) who can assist with orientation, tips, and of course friendship! I’m coming with a small dog, so would also appreciate any tips regarding walking, local laws, etc.

Thank you. Annie

Hi Annie Mariah

One of the ladies on this Forum, Brenda can help you with a vet and any dog related info you might need. Her and her husband have a beautful red setter. She has found an excellent vets practice on Santo Domingo near the centre of Jerez. She also lives there all year round. We both used  Konsell Abogados on Porvera for all of our legal immigration, house purchasing, tax etc etc as  they all  speak perfect english and are a really nice bunch of people. Brenda also has a large number of local contacts for various services and repairs. Best of luck with your move. I'm sure that it will be painless, as my  house purchase etc was. (I believe Konsell have a number of US clients.)

Hi Annie,

There's a WhatsApp group comprising of English-speaking immigrants and Spaniards who meet up at least a couple of times a month in Jerez. My wife and I go along often and there's normally about 10 people present.

There's also a Facebook group covering Cádiz, Jerez and El Puerto de Santa María which you might find useful.

Drop me a PM sometime and I'll forward the details to you.

Good luck with planning your move...

Hi Annie,

The FB group is called Expats Cádiz/El Puerto/Jerez. It's a private group so you'll need to request access, but I believe you're already a member. From there you can get access to thee Jerez Meetup WhatsApp group, but I believe you've already been signposted to this by Steve.

Good luck with the move.

Sorry, Gepke, but I don't know.

I'm sure a quick Facebook search will throw up something as there are a lot of immigrants in the Conil area so there's bound to be plenty of groups.

Good luck with the move.

Hi! I will be disembarking a cruise ship at port of Cadiz with five travel trunks and my small service dog. Is there an appropriate taxi service or private hire from Cadiz to Jerez? Thank you! Annie
