      I am intending to double back to Barcelona airport (after three days in the city) and rent a car to drive to Denia where we have a time share for 5 nights.
      We will have the car for a further three weeks.
      What are the points of interest along the way?
      What are some of the highlights of the area= scenic - food- landscape photography- street photography?
      We probably will bypass Valencia and do that as a day trip when we do not have to drive into a large city.

      Living in Zaragoza

      by gregorheard Online Now Jan 29, 2014 at 8:57 PM

      We're looking to spend six months in Spain next year, and think Zaragoza would be a good spot to live. There is me, my wife and two young boys - they'll be four and one by there. In terms of Spanish speaking - I've done two uni-level units but am still very much in the basic category - Kate hasn't studied formally. I'd like to a short course at the uni. Our major questions surrounding getting good, medium term rentals for that period. What are the prices, and are there many furnished places? We were looking at somewhere between the Uni and the Casco Antiguo.... We're not planning on heading across for another year but fun to start planning now! Cheers, Gregor

    • Nice paces to live near Zaragoza

      by brianandlina Online Now Jul 8, 2013 at 2:37 PM

      Hi there, we are moving to Spain in January for six months from Australia with our four young children. The purpose is for me (Brian) to learn Spanish and get the kids used to speaking it. Mum (Lina) is fluent and our children all understand everything in Spanish but speak mainly English.

      We would like to live close to Zaragoza but not in the city itself. I will be attending Spanish classes at the University, while the kids go to a local school. We both want to practice our cooking and wine appreciation and possibly do some volunteer work with schools or church.

      We had all of Spain to choose from and chose Zaragoza due to its climate between January and June and transport links to Madrid and Barcelona. All we need to find now is find a house to rent in small town or village with community, a winery nearby and a restaurant or two and our plan will be complete. Any advice anyone can offer on any of the above points will be very welcome indeed. Brian

      Hi there,
      I came across this forum in my desperate search for accommodation in Zaragoza. My husband and I are moving there for close to a year from me to study at the University of Zaragoza.
      My classes will be from 4 - 8 pm everyday, I am looking for accommodation that will be walking distance to Campus Rio Ebro. I would preferably like to find accommodation before we arrive beginning of next month.
      The challenge we are facing is that we can't speak Spanish (my degree program is in English) so the accommodation websites are not making much sense. :-(. Are there are sites in English or possibly estate agents who speak English. I promise to learn the language once there.
      Any assistance you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

      Hi everyone I am new on the forum and wanted to ask a few questions in the hope to get suggestions and advice. I have been offered a volunteer position teaching English in Zaragoza and wanted to find more about it before deciding so the questions are as follows:


      • Is apartment hunting difficult and can you find decent but cheap accommodation for one person? Does anyone know the rent per month in Euros for a studio or one bedroomed place? (Any websites you can signpost me to)


      • Is English spoken or understood as I have never been to Spain or tried to speak Spanish.


      • Can you meet people easily as I will not know a soul and would like to make friends outside the work environment.


      • What is the weather like on all seasons? And what is the cost of living like compared to bigger cities in Spain.


      • Are there good supermarkets and shopping centres or foreign brand shops.

      • Any advice on what to bring or expect when living in Zaragoza and anything else a newcomer should know.


      I would appreciate any suggestions or wisdom you may offer and hope to hear from you soon thanks.
