Hola, we are thinking of retiring in about 5 years and are in the process of looking to buy in La Tercia, we know it’s not a busy town, but what are the pros and cons of living  in La Tercia.

Thanks in advance.    Mar

I live in La Tercia.

We have several full time residents who do not own a car ( obviously a car would be an advantage)

We have a Spar supermarket, a Medical Centre with an English speaking Doctor. We have three super Cafe Bars. 

The Junta - Townhall is in the middle of the Town in the same building as the Cafe Bar. The town integrate with both nationalities, sharing facilities, events, even bingo nights.

The English residents involve themselves with all the Spanish Fiestas.

The towns roads and pavements are power washed every week, the drains are regularly cleaned, lampposts kept in good order. 

The Spanish integrate with expats and we take care of each other.

A recent professional squatter who thought they could invade our town were quickly "persuaded to leave and never come back". At a meeting virtually the whole town turned out - community co- operation.

It's the cleanest most friendly Town I have known. 

We have resided in Spain for over 8 year's and have resided in places from Malaga to Denia before deciding on La Tercia for what it offers to retired life.

We also took into account disabled access should it ever be necessary as the pavements are all flat (there are no hills in La Tercia)  and the pavements have been  designed for wheelchair access with pedestrian crossings at junctions.

We have made La Tercia our forever place to live out our retirement. We are so glad we did.

La Tercia is a quiet haven with easy commuting by motorway links to San Javiour and Las Alcazares,  playas only 20-25 minutes drive away.

We lived on a playa for three years. A nightmare during the busy periods. If we want that we can jump in the car. You cannot beat peace and quiet.

Hope you find this information helpful.

Hi all, does anyone know of any issues with the Nuevo La Tercia complex as it is still selling even though they started building in 2006. Also how many empty apartments does it have at the moment. Thanks all for any info given.
