I'll be moving to Granada, Andalucia early next year. I will be bringing 12,000 Euros with me and hope to rent an apt in the 'Granada/ centre' (downtown or close to Cathederal) area of the city.
I've seen rents for around 350 eu - 450 eu per month for what I'm looking for.
So that leaves me aprox 650 - 550 eu per month to live on or around 150 eu a week for food / utilities and misc / socialising.
My plan is to paint full-time so I won't really be doing much all day other than going for walks, local meals and maybe a little vino and a pack of smokes every two days. Am not going to be going to nightclubs as have grown out of that now, but would like to visit bars once or twice a week oncw I have met some locals to hang out with.
I've visited the ciuty before and from prices I saw of groceries and small meals etc, it seems I'd be able to live comfortably for a year on my 12k, not super frugal, or 'living large', but at a decent 'basic' level.
