Is there anyone who can help us as we are thinking of moving to Majorca. How expensive is it to rent/buy property nearby to Palma and how easy will it be to find an office and a labouring job?
Where are the best areas for Brits to live with fellow Brits?
Would be grateful for any info to start us off on our search.
We have recently have purchased a 2 bedroom apartment in Santa Ponca and have considered the move many times. However the lack of work has put us off.
Regarding living amonst British people you will find generally it is quite mixed with British and Germans. South of Santa Ponca you will find the majority being German. I would say the most popular British area is Magaluff.Both Maguluff and Santa Ponca are about 10-15 minute drive to palma. Renting a property in my opinion is slightly cheaper than the UK. majorcahotproperty.com will give you an idea of prices for rental.
I'm unable to help regarding work but I would say that if you can speak the language then this will improve your chances with finding a job. In Majorca they have the Baleares little pages which is similar to the yellow pages here. This is mainly English and has a number of British building companys listed.If you contact them (companys listed) direct you may be able to find work. You may be able to get a copy of this book if you mail firstname.lastname@example.org it is free to pick up in Majorca
Hope this helps and good luck!
