Hi All

I'm new to the group. I'll just give you a quick backstory before i jump straight to my question :)

My husband, 2 children and I currently live and work in Qatar (teachers)- our plan was to live out here for 4 years, save and then buy a 3 bed house in Spain ( Costa Blanca way- we especially like the Alicante area) near international schools and then move there....However, we have had to push our time scale back a bit as I am now pregnant with TWINS!!

So our criteria has changed, we are looking to buy within the next 18 months ( with the idea of renting it primarily), same area but a 5 bedroom house - still near international schools so we can get jobs. What I need to know really is what specific locations have a thriving british community so we can settle and where we can make friends with other families quite easily. Currently, we live in a compound with a shared pool and have a lovely local community where my children can play and my husband and I have a solid network of friends. Seems a big ask but really we're looking for the same kind of feel.

Any help, advice and experiences any of you would like to share is most welcome.

Thanks a million.

Ash :)

My honest opinion the best place to live is Alicante city. There's a place gran via, my kids go to school there ,its a new area massive shopping centre, school, college. I live in the city center. Everything's is on hand , tram bus station ,airport mountain and beach.I lived in the ex- pat areas , didn't suit me. I like to live in Spain.!!! Gran Via is a new area. Have a look on idealists.

Best of luck!!
