<font class="content">Hello. Would appreciate info on the infrastructure within Granada - i.e. roads/amenities, etc. The reason is that we're looking to buy in the area but have been told that infrastructure is not good - I think it's because this person has a vested interest in my buying a property elsewhere, and would like to know from someone actually living/working there now.
The property we're looking at is based around half an hour from Granada City itself. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif</font>

<font class="content">Hi Pat. Thanks for the info. The property is actually in Mures (around 8km from Alcala La Real). We do like the area and, having looked at lots of properties in Pinoso (nr Jumilla), Murcia, Almeria - have decided to go ahead with our purchase anyway...
Obviously "up North" has better infrastructure due to the tourist trade but we aren't buying a holiday home to be with the Brits. We want the "real Spain" if possible.

<font class="content">Hi Casnova
If it is the real Spain you want then this area is great, all our neighbours are Spanish and they have welcomed us with open arms, very tolerant with our language and help put us right when we get it wrong, which is frequently.

<font class="content">I live in granada, in the village of Castillo de Tajarja. We're one of only two families of Brits in the village and we get on famously with the locals in our small village.

I don't know where the impression of poor infrastructure comes from icon_rolleyes.gif

I work with the design, supply and installation of kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. With my work I travel throughout Granada province, Jaen province and the edges of Malaga and Almeria provinces. The road networks to me are fine. Ok, some of the properties I go to are up tracks, but not generally a problem. I have a great network of suppliers for my work in my locality, far more than I had locally to where I had a business in the UK and far more helpful too.

Inland Andalucia is definately the place to be if you want to experience a real and rural Spain, but you're also within easy striking distance of all the facilities, shops and infrastructure you could ever need. You will notice when you drive around places, that villages and towns are being upgraded and worked on, more schools are being built, more medical centres are being built, etc... so they definately have a good infrastructure here.

Hope you settle well and enjoy your new life, I'm sure you will love it here.

Heath</font>
