Hello, we currently live in Almeria in Southern Spain, however the winters here are exceptionally cold, so this year we would like to try living on the Canaries. I have visited the main four but my partner has never been, and we are now struggling to decide which island will be best for us.
We are fairly young-ish, no children, we work online so can be based almost anywhere with a decent Internet connection, and want to be immersed in life as we currently live in a busy tourist village, and we really like Spanish culture, fiestas etc. We would also be interested in joining Spanish lessons as we are intermediate level speakers but want to improve. We also want access to some British life too, good bars with some sport etc, as we currently live too far away to easily visit big shops or a cinema, so anything like this nearby would be great. We like lively bars but not clubs, and want to avoid anywhere rowdy!
Our initial preferences are Tenerife or Gran Canaria, but any advice would be greatly appreciated! And if anyone knows of any good long term rental agents, that would be appreciated as well. Thank you in advance!
