    i know its not ibiza but have you consider tenerife/gran canaria?

    id love to move to ibiza full time but only thing is stopping me is winter, i think id get very lonely and cold.

    went to tenerife earlier this year, i couldnt believe how much warmer and more alive. you can work all year easily!

    personally if i want to live abroad, id pick tenerife, las americans/los cristinos

    Ibiza is very busy through the winter , especially the social scene ,
    If you are only here to sell tickets then you won't survive but bring a idea and you can flourish.

    Hey, I'm taking the plunge too ... finishing my work in London shortly and have an apartment booked in Ibiza Town from late September.

    I've been learning Spanish for months. I've got the apartment up to Christmas and hope to have secured a long term rental by then.

    From a friend who's lived on the island previously yes it seems quiet but the Winter residents are pretty sociable. Apparently lots of things happen on Formentara.

    I should have done this years ago, but the timing for me now is right. I don't want another 10 years to pass and say I should have done that!

    Look forward to grabbing a beer.

    we've been discussing letting our apartment in BCN out next summer and heading across for 8-12 weeks - combining with my dayjob. probably enough to live on but don't wanted to get sucked into some rip-off short-term hire (saw too many horror stories this year)

    Hey , we live here all year ,,
    I'd say the 20-30 year olds do travel more over the winter , all depends on work .
    Obviously if you have to work and it's on the island you stay ,,
    Was a cold 20 today walking around dalt villa !!

    Mate you dont need Spanish , yes it help but it's not necessary.

    I know quit a few french here through my transport business ,, nice guys . Mostly family guys with kids , they have businesses in Paris and live here .

    For seasonal workers there is nothing here over the winter , best to plan to do what you do all year it's the only way to survive

    working in a country without knowing the basics of the language may sounds weird..
