Hi everyone, we have decided to move to this area. We are very interested in Pego. Pro's and con's of living there please. 

We are both retired, active, like to walk, interested in photography. 

Thank in advance

Hello

 Firstly, where are you moving from & do you have UK passports? The advice and rules for moving to Spain differ from UK/Eu countries

Pego is a small working town with one or two nice historic buildings and a good paseo. It has three medium size supermarkets (Aldi, Mercadona, Masymas), a range of small shops, restaurants, cafes and a good health centre. The tennis club is very popular. Countryside roundabout is ideal for walkers - the d'Ebo and Gallinera valleys, plus the Marjal wetlands are close by. The beaches between Oliva and Denia are only 10 minutes drive, and the two towns plus Javea are all in striking distance. The motorway is close by and Valencia and Alicante airports are both just over an hour's drive. The ayuntimento offers free language classes in Castellano and Valenciano.

We like living here and I can't think of any drawbacks, but I'm biased!
