Retiring to Fuerteventura – How We Did It




My wife, Sue, and I sold up in the UK before retiring to Fuerteventura in 2013. We chose to live in the north of Fuerteventura as that was the area we knew best and obviously liked.

This is the full story of why, where, when and how we retired here which I hope may help you if you are thinking of moving to Fuerteventura from UK.

Retiring to Fuerteventura

Why Fuerteventura?

We started coming for holidays in Fuerteventura in the mid-1990s. This was largely because I had been once some years before and knew the winter weather was lovely. We used to come most years for a week to escape the awful UK winter weather, apart from taking the occasional cruise.

The next year we would look at holiday brochures to choose somewhere different to go but usually ended up agreeing to come back here as we knew we would enjoy it.

For a number of years, we stayed in various places in Corralejo and usually had the odd day trip over to El Cotillo.

In 2007 we had our first holiday actually staying in El Cotillo – in a one-bedroom apartment right on the beach. We really enjoyed the chilled atmosphere of El Cotillo.

Our honeymoon in El Cotillo

After living together for 17 years, we finally got married in 2008. We came to Fuerteventura for three weeks on honeymoon and stayed in El Cotillo, never dreaming that one day we would be retiring in Fuerteventura.

We stayed in a lovely apartment in El Cotillo, overlooking the lagoons and the beaches. During that stay, we fell in love with El Cotillo, making many friends who are still friends today.

Two days before the end of our honeymoon, we went for a walk and happened to look in an estate agent’s window. That was it; the idea came into our heads that we wanted an apartment there ourselves. By the following day, we had chosen one and made all the arrangements to buy it. Well, we like to take our time and think things through thoroughly before we commit ourselves!

Deciding to retire in Fuerteventura

We began spending more and more time staying at our apartment.

We each ran our own businesses. Sue could not take any training bookings for a couple of months over winter and, as I had staff in my office, and I worked from home most of the time anyway, I could work anywhere provided I had my laptop and an internet connection.

We, therefore, started spending from just before Christmas to the end of February in the sun, and even longer sometimes. Plus, we got away to our apartment whenever we could at other times of the year.

I think at that point, we both knew that a move to Fuerteventura was what we wanted to do eventually. Sue was actually ready to do it a year or so before me.

What finally did it for me was returning to the UK at the end of February 2012. The weather was amazing for February, and I spent 3 or 4 days sorting it out in the garden. It then rained for over two months solid, and that was it. I said, “Let’s sell up and go!” The decision was made, and the countdown to retiring in the Canary Islands had started.

That was in May 2012, so by the time we got the house ready to sell, accepted an offer and then completed the sale, it was the beginning of February 2013.

Achieving our goal of retiring to Fuerteventura

After getting some quotes, we decided to take much of our furniture and personal items with us.  The cost was less than expected and certainly cheaper than buying new here. This ended up being 133 separate boxes and items.

We used a company based here that handles removals to Fuerteventura, run by an English couple, to organise all of the transport. Annette at Woodside Cargo SL couldn’t have been more helpful.

We had lived in that house in Northamptonshire for 11 years, so we spent weeks clearing out all the rubbish we had accumulated over the years. Where does it all come from?

I made 23 full car load trips to the local recycling centre. We also sold things we didn’t need on Ebay and gave some things to charity shops.

Fortunately, when we moved in, I made the decision only to put suitcases and Christmas decorations in the loft. That was because when we moved out of our previous house, everything that came out of the loft, apart from those two items, went straight to the tip.

Packing up our life

Packing everything up when moving to Fuerteventura took much longer than expected, even though we started weeks before we were due to leave. Every box and item of furniture had to be numbered. Then, it had to be entered on a manifest, together with a description of the contents and the dimensions.

We began to run out of time. By midnight, the day before everything was being collected, we had hardly started packing up the garage contents. Sue helped until 1am then went to bed, and I ended up in there all night to get everything done. It was pretty chilly in there, I must admit.

A large removal lorry arrived at 7am, with two strong guys, who started loading up just as it started snowing. The UK weather was having its last laugh! Eventually, everything was loaded, and off it went to be packed into a shipping container. We used a British-owned company that specialised in removals to Fuerteventura called Woodside Cargo based on the island.

We cleaned through the house and dropped the keys off at the estate agents. Then we were off to a hotel near Bristol airport for two nights before our flight. As we had sold our cars, I hired one locally but with a drop-off at Bristol airport.

We become expats in Fuerteventura finally

So we arrived in Fuerteventura airport late afternoon and went straight to our apartment. We immediately felt like we were at home. Admittedly, having the apartment already made retiring to Fuerteventura easier. We settled into life here quite easily over the next few weeks. That said, it did feel like we were on holiday rather than living here permanently.

Sue started volunteering at the dog pound in La Oliva once a week to help make the poor dogs’ lives more enjoyable. On the third week, she told me that a lovely little black and white dog had been found as a stray and was in the shelter. The next week, he was still there and again the following week.

That meant his three weeks were coming to an end, so he would be put down. So, we adopted him on his last day, ironically April 1st. Sue called him Oscar.

Oscar on his “Gotcha” day just 6 weeks after we retired to Fuerteventura

We always knew we would adopt a dog once settled, but we planned to wait until we bought a house. Having a dog in an apartment is not ideal. Every time he needed to go for a pee, it meant I had to take him for a walk. That was 6 or 7 times a day.

He also woke up and wanted to go out when it started to get light. I am NOT a morning person, but I saw more sunrises during that period than I have ever seen or wanted to see.

Sadly, Oscar died of lung cancer in November 2021. I miss him very much.

We adopted Jenson in November 2014 when he was just three months old.

Buying a house in Fuerteventura

We started house hunting, fuelled by the need to get a garden for Oscar. We would have liked to live in El Cotillo, but there are no houses with gardens, only apartments and village street houses.

In hindsight, we could have made much more money from buying bank-repossessed property. There was a new development of 3-bed semi-detached townhouses in Corralejo, selling for just 75,000€ by the bank. We could have bought three – living in one and renting the other two out. They are now selling for 225,000€ each!

I would guess that we have made little or nothing on the house we bought after considering what we have spent on improving it whereas our house in the UK has doubled since we sold it.

Buyer Beware

Our preferred location was Lajares and eventually, we found a new detached villa we liked in a small development. We agreed on a price and started the process of buying.

The owners then informed us that they had decided to keep the one we wanted, but we could have another right by the road for the same price. This wasn’t worth as much as the one we wanted as it was overlooked, which the other wasn’t.

Then, when we were trying to decide what to do, I found out from another source that the sellers were trying to sell that villa to someone else for more. I told the sellers they were crooks and where to stick their villa, and we started looking again.

We couldn’t find anything else we liked or could afford in Lajares, so we looked elsewhere. We found our current house in La Oliva, made an offer and moved in in September 2013. It needed plenty of upgrading as it hadn’t been particularly well looked after, but it had a good swimming pool and a large garden with trees.

We have done quite a bit of house remodelling since. This has included knocking down a wall to make the kitchen bigger, a new kitchen, both bathrooms remodelled, building a garage and lots more. You can see some of what we have done in this post – our house remodel.

Some buying advice with the benefit of hindsight

Unlike in the UK, the housing market in Fuerteventura and Spain is generally not buoyant. The main reason for that I think is that to move from one house to another is very expensive.

For example, if we wanted to sell our house in La Oliva and buy one in Lajares for the same price, this would be the cost:

If the house were worth 300,000€, it would cost around 60,000€ in taxes, estate agent fees, stamp duty, etc. That is roughly 8% in selling costs and 11% in buying costs.

So my advice would be, if possible, to rent first, preferably in the area you want to buy. Don’t just buy a property without really considering it carefully first. We looked for a villa to rent for a year in Lajares after our original purchase fell through, but there were none available, so we bought this one.

To show how “lucky” I am regarding finances, if we had rented for a year first and bought, we would have had an extra 50,000€ to spend because the exchange rate changed substantially that year. That is, unfortunately, the story of my financial life though.

My thoughts 9 years on

Neither Sue nor I regret retiring to Fuerteventura. Of course, not everything is rosy, it has its bad points, but then there can’t be anywhere that is 100% perfect. Living in Fuerteventura is very different from coming here on holiday.

I often see on Fuerteventura forums people coming here on holiday and describing Fuerteventura as paradise. The dictionary definition states, “Paradise: a place of great happiness where everything is exactly as you would like it to be.”

When you spend two weeks a year staying in a hotel in one of the resorts, having fun every day, everything may seem perfect. But clearly, that is not true of Fuerteventura or anywhere else.

One of the things you will hear from friends and family many times if you do end up moving to Fuerteventura is, “You are always on holiday,” but of course, that is not the case.

Normal life takes over, such as shopping, housework, house repairs, car maintenance, gardening – and you may also have to add cleaning a swimming pool. The main difference is that you no longer do these in the rain and the cold.

The good things about living in Fuerteventura

  • The cost of living is lower
  • A slower pace of life
  • No traffic jams
  • The climate means that we live a more outdoor lifestyle than we would have had we stayed in the UK
  • The healthcare is good
  • It is very cosmopolitan, so you meet people from many different countries
  • Informal living. I hate formality, particularly having to dress up. I always wear shorts here and haven’t worn long trousers since 2013.
  • Cheap, good coffee everywhere

The worst things about living in Fuerteventura

  • The top of my list is the way animals, in particular dogs, are treated (mainly by locals) and particularly the local hunters who abuse dogs
  • The stone-aged internet – no longer valid as we now have fast internet
  • Long-winded bureaucracy – the motto here must be “Never make something simple when you can make it complicated!” The Spanish have turned bureaucracy into an art form. Almost nothing can be done online, and absolutely nothing can be done by post. You must always travel to government offices to do anything, normally more than once.
  • Online shopping. This is getting increasingly difficult as more and more things on Amazon etc (even Amazon Spain) won’t be shipped to the Canary Islands.
  • I miss green and forests (but Fuerteventura does have its own beauty)
  • The ridiculous cost of flights to/from the UK during school holidays

Clearly, the good things about retiring to Fuerteventura outweigh the bad; otherwise, we would have left.

Moving Abroad Quote

“I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.” – Bill Bryson

      Hi Liz, A friend of ours in the UK has recently adopted a Podenco and is doing well in agility with her. I bought fishing gear here three years ago but so far have never used it. Thanks for your comment.

    Hello, we are fairly certain we will be retiring early (mid 50s) to Furtaventura in 2018. We have spent a month at a time there for several years and will be coming for 3 months before we sell up and move. Currently looking at costs. For example purchasing costs involved, tax as residents and selling costs and capital gains cost should we decide to return at some point in our later years. I would be grateful if you could offer any advice on any of the above. Really enjoying your youtube channel. We only found it last week and subscribed (mdad hdad), and look forward to future videos in 2017. Happy New Year to you both.

    Hi JP we are planning to retire in summer 2019 to fuerteventura having looked at your vlogs. We are following you and your videos have helped make up our minds. We are planning a week visit in may this year 2017. We have so many questions and wondered if we could meet up over a coffee somewhere? I know it’s a bit of a bold proposition but we are pretty similar in age and lifestyle terms. Karen has a Facebook page Karen Purnell which you can check out as she is following you. If you could take the time to email us we would really appreciate it or pm her on Facebook. Many thanks and hope we can arrange a get together in May. John Purnell

    Truly inspiring.
    Came to your youtube channel as i travel jan19 first time to Canares.
    And yep i also think of – why not live on an island where its warmer and less rain and grey skies.
    But lets stay realistic – depends on money, continuous cash flow as there will be no work for me.
    Sure with laptop i can also work “anywhere”, depends on business you run, if its sustainable plan or not.
    At the moment, my “realistic” way to go is – working in germany, and one month go on trips to places i have never been, as that makes me happy, i live all the time in “here and now”, walk on streets i have never walked before. Exciting, and some kind of “change to the normal allday busy life”.

    And later – lets see, if i find realistic ways, to stay there, buy a house, for me even a tiny house would be OK, i dont like big houses and dont need them.

    Thanks for sharing your expirence, i enjoy the read. 🙂

    Hello, Dear,

    I’m from Belgium and on retirement.
    I want to buy a house between Betancuria and Vega de Rio Palma.
    The house is about 300 meter above sealevel.
    I read certenly that every 100 meter higher there goes of 0,6 degrees then on sealevel.
    So this house there is it about 2 degrees cooler then on sealevel, is that correct ?
    How is the wind in that aria ?

    Thank you
    Kind regards,
    Michel Paulussen

      JP in Fuerteventura

      Hi Michael, That is an unusual place to choose but it will be very quiet. Learning Spanish will be a must there I would say but as you are from Belgium you probably already have good language skills. It does get cooler the higher you get so it will be a few degrees cooler there due to that. As you will be up ion the hills you will have more cloud there than you do at the coast. We live in La Oliva, so are a bit higher than the coast but more importantly close to hills so we often have cloud and I can see from my garden that the sky is clear over El Cotillo. I am not sure what the wind will be like there except that it will probably have its own micro-climate.

    Hi John

    I really enjoyed reading about you wife and your life in Fuerventura. I am so sick of the UK and have been wanting to spend at least 6month of the awful winter out of the UK. We are in our late 60’s but fit and thankfully no ailments We want a quiet place, no crowded beaches, noisy youth of the usual tatt that seems to go with the British abroad. We just like walks,photography and nature in general. Thanks for your advice to rent. I think this would be a good idea and would like to come i say November through to January 2021 and see how we get on. I wonder is you could recommend anywhere to stay during this time. We like the simple life, just a clean place to cook and sleep, no need for dishwashers of anything fancy, and If we did want to email our son are there an internet cafe? We spend most of our working life in London but now live in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey JP.
    Quick question,
    What’s the implications of tax/ import duties when relocating hose furniture etc to fuerteventura?

    1. JP in Fuerteventura avatar
      JP in Fuerteventura

      Mark, that is all very much an unknown at the moment. When we moved obviously the UK was still in the EU. As the Canary Islands are not within the EU for customs purposes we paid some import duty but it was pretty negligible, less than 200€ if I remember rightly. After January 1st that may change.

    Hi JP

    I’m really enjoying your website and YouTube channel. I’m planning to move to Fuerteventura and am due to travel there next month all going well.

    From the research I’ve done it looks like I first need to organise a solicitor and then look at getting mortgage approval before I even talk to estate agents. Do you have any recommendations and are there any pitfalls that I should try to avoid? Also, is it possible/normal to get an engineer to do a survey of a property before buying, just to make sure it’s been built properly?

    Thanks for your help

    1. JP in Fuerteventura avatar
      JP in Fuerteventura

      Stephen, sorry for the delay in replying. I don’t think it does any harm to look at what is available first. We found our apartment then a solicitor and a bank for the small mortgage we had on it initially. There are no surveyors here unlike in the UK and, I assume, in Ireland too. The best you can do is to get a builder to take a look around.

  10. Mandy avatar

    Hi JP

    We watch your channel all the time and it’s our dream to move to the island. We currently live on a small island in the English Channel so do experience the winter weather as you mention.

    We are a long way from retirement however I could possibly work remotely but you mention the internet isn’t great – is that still the case?

    Also what is the process to become a resident and how do you tap into the hospital system?

    Next time we can get the island it would be great to meet up for a
    Coffee and a chat.

    Following Brexit I imagine things are going to be more difficult moving to the island but if you happen to meet anyone who is currently going through that experience who will be willing to pass on their experiences that would be fab too.

    I look forward to hearing from you

      Mandy, sorry for the delay in replying. Things are getting better here. I am just days away from the installation of fibre optic internet. Certainly the main places here are now coming into the 21st century. You should be ok. If you are working and paying taxes then you will be covered under the Spanish health system. With regard to obtaining residencia/TIE the best thing to do is to look at the Citizens Advice Bureau Spain website ( which has all the up to date info and also join their very helpful Facebook group. Brexit means you need to jump through a few more hoops but it is still possible. Next time you are over contact me and we can arrange to meet for coffee.

    Hi JP,
    I do a form of trading that requires reasonable internet speed. Do you think that would be possible in Fuerteventura? I was thinking moving to the capital as I no longer drive. I have yet to visit the island but like it’s property prices as opposed those in south Tenerife–a place I really like.
    Thanks in advance for any advice. I will start looking at your U tube production,

    Hello JP,
    My husband and I have enjoyed many of your videos and articles – Thank you for that:-)
    We are both EU citizens +-10 years short of retirement, but we’d like to get out of this crazy life now.
    We are thinking of relocating to the canaries and very possibly to Fuerteventura. Before getting that far, I was wondering if you know the answers to the following questions?
    -Can we obtain permanent residency in Spain without being employed or self-employed?
    -Will we be able to be covered by the Spanish healthcare without being employed or self-employed?
    I presume one need the permanent residency in Spain and obtaining a social number before asking for healthcare?
    To cover the costs of life once there, we are planning on keeping our property where we currently live and rent it out when going abroad, the rental should cover our living costs on the canaries. Moreover, we’re looking to buy our own property on the canaries to avoid paying rent or mortgage.
    I hope your experience and advice can help us further in making our way to the canaries.
    Thank you, Annette

      JP in Fuerteventura

      Hi Annette,
      As EU citizens you have the right to live here and work if you wish. You will be able to obtain a residencia too without working. I think it only becomes permanent after 5 years, but I may be wrong. You won’t be covered by the Spanish Health System without working although you may be able to pay monthly to be covered under the Convenio Especial scheme. Once you reach state pension age in your current country of residence you can receive free cover using a form (called S1 in the UK and may be the same form for other countries too). The other alternative is to pay for private healthcare. Good luck with the move.

    Hi I shall be in receipt of my U.K. state pension in 2 years from now. I’m almost certain that I do not wish to remain in the U.K. by then, already thinking about correlejos buying a property as I do have Spanish/english distant relatives there.
    I do have health issues, such as osteoarthritis fibromyalgia which plays havoc with the long chilly grey British weather. I also rely on steroid medication to remain alive as I was poorly with Cushings, had surgery but now left without being able to make cortisol naturally, and so I am afraid of not getting vital medications and getting medical health care should I have a fatal adrenal crisis. Husband is 70 already gets pensions state and private, I do not work due to mobility issues not too serious but in chronic pain. I heard that in retirement age we should be ok in Spanish healthcare, I shall be 66/67 by the time the move would happen, but this is of course my main concern, if you could advise me of this it would help a lot in making important decisions.
    Also on selling our U.K. property, we’d need to then buy our retirement home. In fuerteventura, which would be a cash purchase.
    My next concern is that we’d be bringing our young shih tzu with us and I don’t want to crate her for the flight, it would be a drive journey for us which we’d love as we used to live in France years ago and would enjoy the trip, taking out time.
    Could you please tell me where we would actually need to drive to, luckily we live near the tunnel in south east as well as the port of Dover. I presume after the drive part, we could ferry to fuerteventura with our furry member of family? How long is the ferry trip do you know?
    We’d be Leaving the overcrowded, chaotic crazy U.K.mainly for weather reasons, but we want so much more to have a quieter out door way of life where we could potter about garden, a passion of mine as I grow herbs being an herbalist making natural products. Take Strolls along the beach during the evenings, occasional meals out, and hopefully enjoy making new friends, like us in retirement years. A not too hilly area would suit us both, it’s been years since I last came. A rural area would not be suitable in our time of life, would not mind a British/expat community area although my Spanish would soon improve quickly living there and and as we love Spanish way of life, and people we are not afraid to be amidst locals. We’d be looking for a low maintenance bungalow type of property with enclosed private garden, in a quietish area, but within easy reach of supermarket and amenities of course. Any ideas on area please say.
    Any tips,or useful contacts would be great on my many questions. Planning well in advance so am already brushing up on my Spanish.
    Will start looking at your videos now that I’ve found you. Sound useful.our
    Grown up son and daughter already have power of attorneys and our will is all done too, although that will need amending to suit change of property and of course may need to be translated into Spanish for the notary to have record of when we purchase. I know too the need to get in place pet requirements for travelling. But If you can tell me how the health care system works for our age group, how I’d get my regular repeat of vital medications – that would really help me in making this big decision a little easier as it’s an important one,
    Many thanks

      Hi Christine. Thanks for your long comment.
      1. Healthcare. As your husband is already receiving a UK state pension he would be able to join the Spanish healthcare system immediately (from an S1 form from the UK) and actually you can too, even though you don’t yet receive state pension as you would be considered a dependant. In fact, as Sue received her state pension before I did that is what we did. The Spanish healthcare system is good. It is easy to get an appointment with a GP and the hospital is excellent. Sue had a knee replacement just before Christmas at the hospital whih went well. There are some things the hospital here don’t cover such as cardiac and oncology but the health service arrange flights to the main hospital in Gran Canaria for those. A friend who had a heart attack last year was stablised at the hospital and then flown by helicopter to Gran Canaria for treatment. Repeat prescriptions are all handled online though the pharmacies so no problem there.
      2. Where you choose to live is a matter of choice. Corralejo is relatively flat as is much of Caleta, except for Chipmonk Mountain. Likewise El Cotillo (or favourite place). You really need to come here and perhaps stay in each place at least for a few days. You Spainish would be unlikley to improve in Caleta though.
      3. Travel here with a dog. You would need to catch the ferry from Cadiz or Huelva to either Lanzarote or Gran Caneria. See
      4. Wills. You will probably need to make Spanish wills too.

      I hope this is usefuil. If I can help more then you can find an email address on the site or on the Youtube Channel.

    Hello JP,
    Thank you for your website and YT channel which are very informative. After several years researching holiday home destinations in the canary islands my wife and I are due to visit in October to view properties in Lajares & El Cotillo. The idea is to escape the UK winter for up to 6 months a year. My question relates to buying options. So far I’ve signed up with 1 Corralejo-based estate agent but I read your advice on auctions and I also hear that private sales sometimes happen. Would you be able to send me recommendations of any local contacts that i could get in touch with before our trip in October please? Many thanks.
