Mike, Mil Palmeras, Spain

37-year old Swedish IT Professional Mike has made a home in sunny Mil Palmeras, Spain. Perfect weather, friendly people and beautiful coastlines make up this lovely seaside beach town and it's no surprise that Mike and his wife, Rose love it there. We ask Mike to tell us more about his experience living the life in Mil Palmeras.

What do you enjoy best in the country you're in?

Any recommendations for travellers going to your new country?

Things I enjoy most in my new country:

Mil Palmeras is a small tourist village in the south of Spain. The name of the place is a direct translation of "thousand palms". I am not sure about why the place is named that way but probably because there are palm trees growing everywhere. We have 300 days of sunshine, making our village a popular destination for tourists.

Now, what I love about my village:

We make great Spanish food- I've never eaten in a Spanish restaurant around Mil Palmeras and have been disappointed.

Since we've owned the house for 20+ years, I have a lot of friends who go to Mil Palmeras for vacation and it's quite nice to have an opportunity to catch up with all of them.
