Hello! We are considering purchasing buying an affordable apartment in Spain in the next 4-5 years. I lived in Barcelona in college and loved it! However, I prefer to be in a place where Castillian Spanish is spoken. We intend to rent property at least 9 months when we are not there to offset costs and our budget is 200Euros tops for a 2 bedroom place. I tend to love cities and want a place where I am not known as the American as your may get in a small town. I Am considering Madrid but I love oceans. We want to be within 1-2 hours of Madrid or Barcelona because we want direct flights from US and they only go to these 2 places. I considered Valencia but in that Catalan. Our intent is to learn Spanish fluently and do not want to be in areas where English is common. Ideas?
