      Costa Del Sol

      Up to 12 months ago I lived in the Costa Blanca for 6 years. Since then I have returned to the UK and finding it difficult to settle here.
      I would like to know where the best expat community is in the Costa Del Sol.
      I have 3 small children 3 months, 2 years and 4 years. I would like them to go to a British school. My husband works on the oil rigs so jobs are not an issue I would just like to be somewhere where there is plenty going on with lots of british people and shops!! I would be looking at renting long term to begin with.

      Can anyone help with any information that would be useful to making any decisions

      Marbella's the place. It has a good mix of nationalities - Brits, Skandies, Germans all living in harmony with the Spanish. You have all the designer shops in Puerto banus as well as the El Corte Inglaise and 5 mins up the road is La Canada shopping mall and Marbella Town. Plenty of options to spend the ol' mans hard earned.....
      it happens a lot everywhere in the world...
