Lifestyle migrants from northern European countries like the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, and France, tend to buy more in Spain than economic migrants, and focus on coastal resort areas with much larger budgets. They provide the bulk of expat demand for homes in Spain’s best known resort towns and areas like the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca, and the Balearic and Canary islands.

The British expat population is by far the biggest national group of lifestyle migrants in Spain, and has fallen from a high of just under 400,000 in 2012 to 250,000 today, a decline of around 37%.

But where are the British going, and why?
