We found quite an interesting collection of interviews of people who are living, have invested and are working as well on the Costa del Sol. We would like to share it with you. Many of them come from different parts of the world. This thirty-nine year old gentleman for instance, coming from Ukraina lives in Malagà since two years. He is the Director of a Company specialized in container planning, in the Malagà Valley, an ideal site for reseach and devolopment.
“How is life in Costa del Sol?” This is a common question we get to hear from most of the new-comers. Having made the choice to live here, our very positive answer to this question can be easily taken for granted!

A fifty-year-old Dutch lady chose Malagà as an ideal international ground for developing her own Marketing Agency.
The presence of many open minded foreigners and the entrepreneurial freedom Malagà offers, have been the main standards according to which she decided to settle and explore this new market. Having learnt spanish 25 years ago, she's back to Malagà for contributing in the creation of new opportunities in this wonderful and secret Province. Let alone the citizens of Malagà who came back to their beautiful land after years of experiences abroad.
This is the case of a fourty-eight year old gentleman who decided to come back as well and settle at the “Parque Tecnologico de Andalusia” in the suburb of Malagà after many years spent working in the Silicone Valley, California. He is the managing Director of a Company that offers Hightech Telecomunication services. Thanks to the unique Malagà International Airport and its facilities, he is free to travel easily to Asia, to North and South America for his work. Not to mention the wonderful climate of Malagà, its delicious Mediterranean food, its multi cultural context and international atmosphere.
