Hello all!  My husband Jeremy and I are looking to move to Costa Brava in the next couple of years.  It was our perception that Begur would be a great location, not just because of gorgeous town and beaches, but access to English-speaking friends year-round (Jeremy speaks very limited Spanish). 

A good friend of ours believes that Tossa would have more of an English-speaking community, and therefore more access to year-round friends.  We welcome your comments as experts actually living in the area. Begur?  Tossa?  Other?

All the best,   Amari

Hi, we have a place in Tossa and visit for around four months each year.

Not sure if it’s just our social group, however, I’m not sure Tossa or Begur has a year round Expat group? There’s more Catalans, French and Europeans.

Perhaps further North around L’Escala or Estartit area might offer more in our experience.

There’s also a group run by the U3A Costa Brava which could help as they have a large following and could let you know where most people are located.

Having said all that Tossa is beautiful and open for its locals all year and always something going on. Good luck with your search.
