Exclusive lifestyle in Spain
Do you speak English? 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 our website very interesting.
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.
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.
- Bi-lingual staff (English-Spanish) in reception, on hand to support residents (full-time or part-time) in all aspects of their daily life
- First-class facilities are provided and maintained for residents’ exclusive use.
- A secure gated community with residents having remote-controlled access.
- Roads that have street lighting and pavements lined with fruit trees that provide residents with a feeling of living in a community rather than a park.
- 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.
Are you thinking of retiring to Spain one day? If so, a visit to 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.
During the visit, you will see for yourself the quality of the facilities and support we provide; plus, you get to ask as many questions as you like. After the visit, you will have a good understanding of what it is like to live in a supported community in Spain.
The community is less than an hour from Malaga Airport but well away from the usual busy tourist areas with inflated prices.
Our location in Europe means residents living in the community can enjoy the same warmer weather but with a lower cost of living. Living in real Spain with new friends and neighbours is what makes the retirement lifestyle on Posada so unique.
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.
Become a resident
Are you lucky to be old enough to think about retiring soon and looking to enjoy life? If so, the community lifestyle here in Spain is perfect for you.
The community also works very well for people who are single and retired or semi-retired. Everyone in the park form their own friendships, and the social events are not geared around couples, they are provided for residents. Everyone in the park has the same aim in life individually, and that is to enjoy each day to the full.
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.
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.
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.
With English as the common language inside the park, the reception staff can look after and support residents/owners of all nationalities.
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.
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.
Rapid response communication
Our customer service agents are online most of the time. That means you soon get a response to any question you may have. You can also use any of the contact methods below if you wish to come on a visit.
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

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.

Looking for a home?
If there are no homes for sale on our website at any time, Costa Difference offer a “home/price alert” service which informs registered subscribers by e-mail the moment a home goes on sale.
They also provide a HEADS UP service alongside the “price alert” service for people who are looking to join the community soon. Use “heads up” if you need to know when a home is about to go on sale that matches your requirements perfectly.
Buying a mobile or park home within the park makes you part of the community immediately, giving you exclusive access to first-class support and facilities.

The mobile home residents have formed their own bowls club making full use of the bowls green. For the golfers, there is a wonderful golf course in the local town of Antequera. The Posada Bowls Club website will have all the information with regards to the bowls club.
