Re: Buying a property in sunny spain - tips?

I don't have a house in Spain, but I've been thinking about it. From my little knowledge, you need to be careful if you plan to AirBNB it out.

Re: Rugby for my 5 year old

Most places have a junior RFC. My 8 yo started playing this year with H&F

There have been several FinTechs (GoHenry) comes to mind that have monthly fees but more control for parents to see what they are buying and an app etc. Or you could ...
