We are looking to retire to Fuerteventura in approx 3 years time,  my partner is Irish so not affected by the Brexit debacle but I am a kiwi with dual nationality (British) and I am very confused as to what the requirements would be for us to be able to live there permanently. He will probably be working (barwork, gardener etc) but I will be retired with an annual income of approx £12,000 with about £100,000 in savings. We would be purchasing a property, probably in Corralejo. Am I correct in thinking that this is enough for me to be able to apply for  permanent residency?

As you rightly say, your partner will not have a problem due to his nationality. Given you will have a steady income and will not be reliant on the state, you should not have a problem either (apart from the usual VISA requirements as you would in Ireland). If you ever purchase property in your name or joint names, that makes a difference as you then also have assets on the Island.

I would say, with my limited experience that given your situation you should not have a problem. Then again with your Dual Nationality, after BREXIT you may be able to use you British Nationality element to overcome some things depending on the outcome. Who knows.

My wife and I are contemplating purchasing a holiday home in corraljeco, this is with a view to spending extended periods when I slow down from work in approx 5 yrs. I have spent months viewing properties on line with a view to holidaying and viewing property this July. Though it is difficult to tell from pictures alone, I tend to favour apartments within central Corraljeco itself, though these are unlikely to have access to a pool.

Are there hotels / complexes that allow use of pool facilities for an agreed flat fee. I.e something more than a daily arrangement that provides reasonable value.

Many thanks

Most hotels don’t know who their guests are so feel free to use anytime. I did it often during the time we were in rented accommodation  whilst our house was being built. The only issue is buying drinks as many wont accept cash but put it on a room or all inclusive using wristband identification.


I don’t know any that offer a service as you suggest but it does not mean it don’t happen.


Hope this helps.
