(First time poster here!)
My husband and I are planning a big trip in 2017 and wish to spend 2-3 months (approx. June-Aug) in the south of Spain. Initially, we were looking at Malaga and Nerja but after some investigation, is seems that the Costa Del Sol is very touristy and can be expensive.
We would like to immerse ourselves in Spanish life (and learn some Spanish along the way) so are now considering Vejer de la Frontera or Barbate. Both places appear a little cheaper for accommodation too.
Does anyone have recommendations of places in the area that offer all amenities (restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, banks etc) aren't too touristy and will provide a true Spanish experience?
We are both in our mid 50's and wont have a car. Also, suggestions for self contained apartments would be helpful. At this stage, we are looking at listings through Airbnb.
Thank you for your assistance!!
