Supported retirement community.

Exclusive lifestyle in Spain

Are you due to retire in the next few years, or retired already? Do you like the idea of being part of a like-minded, fully supported residential community living in Spain? If so, we think you might find all the information on our website worth reading.

You will see that joining an English-speaking park home community provides an opportunity to live in Spain (a country with different languages, cultures and traditions) yet feel right at home.

Fancy joining our supported park home community

Park La Posada is unique; it is a fully supported residential retirement/semi-retirement park home community near Malaga on the Costa del Sol in Spain.

We are located in Alameda, not far from Mollina. The nearest town is Antequera, and the local airport is Malaga.

Retirement community living starts from as little as 25,000 up to 75,000 for one of the latest park homes. To know when a home goes on sale, it is best to sign up for the home alert service. Be the first to know when a home goes on sale.

Our customer support team also assist buyers and sellers with the legal transfer of ownership process. The service they provide is the main reason so few homes (if any at all) are on sale at any time. 

To get an instant idea of what the park offers, we suggest you watch the video narrated by Paul Toole.

Over the years, we have become a popular retirement location in Spain, and this is what our new residents can expect when they join our community.   

  1. Bi-lingual staff (English-Spanish) in reception, on hand to support residents (full-time or part-time) in all aspects of their daily life. This includes a FREE T4M telephone translation service membership when signing up as a resident.
  2. A secure gated community with residents having remote-controlled access. 24-hour security is provided.
  3. First-class facilities are provided and maintained for the residents’ exclusive use—there is no need to reserve sun beds by the pool.
  4. Roads with street lighting and pavements (lined with fruit trees) give a feeling of living in a community rather than a park.
  5. Affordable park homes that are very easy to buy. No purchase tax to pay, and you are not obliged to use a lawyer. A SAPA contract between the seller and the buyer is all that is required, arranged by our customer service agents. 
  6. The residents and the park often arrange supported community events to make life interesting. One example is the EuroMillions lottery ticket purchased by the park every Tuesday using a unique system for choosing the numbers. If it wins, 50% of the jackpot will be shared with the residents. Check the latest numbers. 

So, are you thinking of retiring to Spain one day? If you are, visiting La Posada will be an invaluable source of information.

Our system is such that we ask a resident to introduce the park and lifestyle to pre-arranged visitors. With a resident showing you around, the visit is both relaxing and informative.

There is no need to spend a fortune retiring to Spain. 

Visit park La Posada in Spain

During the visit, you will see for yourself the quality of our facilities and support, and you can ask as many questions as you like.

After the visit, you will understand what it is like to live in a supported community in Spain and the benefits of doing so.

To start, why not download our video brochure to watch later? It will show you what you can expect to see on a visit. It is also a good idea to read our frequently asked questions.

The community is less than an hour from Malaga Airport but well away from the usual busy tourist areas with inflated prices. In Alameda, residents are considered locals, not tourists.

Our location in Europe also means residents living in the community can enjoy the same warmer weather but with a lower cost of living. Living in real Spain (as opposed to tourist Spain) with new friends and neighbours is what makes the retirement lifestyle on Posada so unique.

To join the community, you need to have a social level of English. Citizens from countries like the UK, Ireland and Holland have the advantage that English is a first or second language

Choosing Park La Posada

Mobile or park homes within the community are sometimes on sale, with owners offering a “buyer assistance” package provided by our customer service agents Costa Difference

Buyer assistance includes an independent market valuation to confirm the asking price is genuine, a SAPA contract for the legal transfer of ownership, and a secure client account for the initial deposit. The “Buyer Assistance” package is unique to Park La Posada. 

Buying a resale home in the park is currently the only way you can join the community, and as you can appreciate, they do sell quite quickly, thanks to the secure method used for the transfer of ownership.

Homes for sale within the community can range from 25,000 to 75,000 (independently verified if advertised on this site), depending on make, model and age. Paying in GBP or Euros makes no difference, thanks to Wise Bank.

Couples promoting Park la Posada lifestyle

The community also works very well for people who are single and retired or semi-retired.

For UK citizens, Costa Difference provides all the information you need to help you obtain the non-lucrative visa that is now required to become a resident in Spain. You can access that information here.

EU Citizens do not need a visa to become residents. Only a social level of English is required so that the bi-lingual staff in the park can understand and fully support you.

No matter what your nationality is, your new life in Spain can quickly go from a dream to reality with our support and the support of the retirement community as a whole.

Within the park home community, everything is in Euros. Not a problem for UK citizens as a Wise account provides a cost-effective way to keep funds in the UK and exchange what you need to have in Euros in Spain.

With a WISE account, there is no need to have a Spanish bank account. The same debit card works in GBP when in the UK and Euros when in Spain.  You can open a WISE account before coming to Spain.

Early retirement

Park La Posada is perfect for anyone who hopes to retire early. You do not need to be a resident to own a home in the community. Using a home as a base in Spain until you retire has two big advantages.

Firstly you can have everything you need in place for your visit inside your home in Spain. That means you can travel to and from Spain with FREE hand carry only on the plane.

Secondly, and this cannot be overstated, when the time comes to retire, you will already have friends in the community and instantly become part of the full-time community.

Early retirement using Park La Posada

We recommend annual travel insurance for anyone using their homes for semi/retirement personal holidays (immediate family can also), because it is a great alternative to full health care in Spain. Some policies allow 90 days outside the country of residence.

Bi-lingual support

With English as the common language inside the park, the reception staff can look after and support residents/owners of all nationalities. Posada residents can also access the T4M telephone translation service with FREE membership when they register for the service on our website.

To experience life in real Spain, all you need to do is venture outside the community. There is nothing more Spanish than the 18th Century Hotel Posada el Tempranillo situated right next to Park La Posada.

The local village of Alameda is also as Spanish as they come as well. It is where the locals and residents practice their “Spanglish” in the shops, bars and restaurants.

Hotel Tempranillo

La Posada park opened in 2004 as a UK style mobile home park. In 2008 it transformed into an exclusive 5* style open all year UK/EU retirement/semi-retirement community. New custom-built park homes started arriving. 

Following the transformation, we decided to use the Costa Difference team as our customer service agents to deal with all enquiries and park visits because they specialise in representing residential communities.

With local knowledge and years of experience, they are on hand to answer any questions you may have about the community or lifestyle.

All about the lifestyle

The community itself is in the village of Alameda, and the nearest town is Antequera. The nearest airport is Malaga on the Costa del Sol for people flying in to visit.

Antequera, is known as the crossroads of Andalucia. It has motorway access to the beaches of Malaga and the cities of Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba.

We also have the lakes of Ardales and Iznajar reasonably close for recreation. Residents love taking their visitors to the lakes for the day to show why they love living here so much.

Reasons to visit

La Posada Park has developed over the years into a wonderful park home community thanks to the common language policy inside the park.

We provide first-class facilities and total support designed to ensure carefree retirement. With a choice of mobile or park homes on sale within the park, becoming a resident is easy. Homes are priced in GBP and Euros.

Thanks to our residents’ love of Spain, and everything Spanish, the community has become an integral part of the village. Enjoying what the local area has to offer is all part of the lifestyle.

If you are planning to visit the area, we recommend staying in the town of Antequera for a few days. Right now, the Hotel Coso Viejo seems to be perfect as a base. Reasonably priced and in the heart of Antequera, the nearest big town; check out availability.

This is required because turning up without an appointment is not possible. 

You can also rent a car from Malaga airport if needed as quite often there are some great deals out of season with hire. The journey from the airport is very straightforward.
