You are right I have moved to Andorra. However within 3 hours drive there is Barcelona and a large stretch of coastal Spain. Now that my family has expanded I am considering renting a 2nd home on the coast or in Barcelona. Or both where I will rent for 1 year on the coast and after that in Barcelona.
We love Barcelona, but the cost of hotels (2 rooms as we have kids), eating out and parking make the option of a 2nd apartment very appealing. I also think of sharing the apartment with one other family that have similar needs.
In your experiences worldwide is it a 6 month minimum for a long term? Or is anyhwere more flexible without being a lot more expensive for shorter term holiday lets?
I'm not looking at Spain. I fancy trying somewhere tropical and see if it suits me better than it did you but I could try other places on the way.
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.
A "Governbankment" is a Government that has no line between itself and it's banks. The UK's Governbankment does policies to enrich bankers at the expense of the public. The more money people are encouraged to borrow, the more money bankers make.
The Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS) is stealing from savers to make them pay for crimes by bankers. Via lower interest on savings, all the bank fines for PPI, LIBOR and interest rates swaps are now being paid by savers so that bankers can keep pocketing bonuses.

"Printing money is the last resort of desperate governments when all other policies have failed" - George Osborne Jan 2009
- So what do Camoron & Osborne do? Print money and leave interest rates at 0.5% when inflation is over 5%
If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
I want to tell you my secret now.... I see debt people
