Hi Brian and Fiona, and welcome to the forum!

My in-laws lived in La Marina, after they retired, for 18 years and loved it.  A neighbour of mine, who also owns a holiday home on La Marina urb, is a keen golfer and has found the most cost-effective way to play regularly is to join the many Golf Societies around - usually advertised in the back page few pages of the free newspapers, which you can pick up in supermarkets, estate agents, etc.  I don't know whether there are any societies on the urb, but my neighbour has joined the Golf Society at Imanyo's bar restaurant in Daya Nueva, about a 15/20 minutes drive from the urb.

It's good that you're moving in February - typically, it's our coldest month, but with daytime temperatures around 15C, it will probably still feel quite warm to you guys!  We've lived here for 7 years and have no regrets.

Wishing you all the best for your move.

Kind regards,

Kim

A couple of sites that may be of help are:

Citizens Advice Bureau Spain for bureaucratic stuff, and

N332 for anything to do with driving in Spain.   This website, and their Facebook page, are run in collaboration with officers of the Guardia Civil for English speaking people, and the website has an English version of the Spanish equivalent of the Highway Code on it.
