I have owned a property just outside the village of Seron for many years now. It is a great peaceful place and they have their fiestas like all these small villages, and there are a few English living there but not many. As said on the main page the hams are great………
I keep going back year after year and enjoy the tranquillity of the place and the space. There is not much space in the Town and it is set on a steep hill but the outskirts are fantastic. Obviously many people like the Town and that is why many live there. You can get to the beach and aqua park in an hour and many other places. The food is great, Las Marinas Hotel and restaurant in Hijate on the main Road are a safe bet with a menu in English and Spanish and there are a few bars and restaurants in Seron where a little Spanish is useful. The best local markets are Baza (the biggest in the area) and Tijola is on a Saturday. Tijola market is on flat land. Seron’s market is on a Friday and you can buy the usual cooked chicken etc but the market is not that big.
The one thing I would advise all potential buyers is that getting planning permission is almost impossible as the local Town hall / Mayor and his part time Town Planner put so many obstacles in the way and make up so many unheard of taxes and laws most people give up in the end after a year or so and go else where. So if you buy a place here make sure you do not require an extension. Many families have had to return or move to other bigger Towns such as Baza where things are a little more dynamic and busier. Nice place, nice food, good place for tranquil holiday, nightmare Town Hall. Don’t even think of buying a building plot. I have a building plot and have wasted thousands of euros on architect’s fees only to give up even after the Almeria Architects College approved the plans. Don''t mention the Town Hall! I hope that is objective and unbiased.

After spending months searching the villages of Almeria, I found this delightful town.
Settled at the top of a hill, surrounded by stunning countryside, Seron is the perfect place to chill awhile. A few good restaurants, friendly local bars and a good selection of shops means that you really can make Seron a base for exploring the area.
Cera, with its constant-temperature swimming pool, Baza, with its thriving markets and Albox, are no more than half an hour away. But why travel from this wonderful little town, when there''s so much to see right here.
Oh, and Seron is most famous for its delicious smoked ham (a little like Italian parma ham, but every producer manages to give their ham a delighful yet different flavour).
I liked the place so much I bought a place here. And sitting looking out from the terrace towards the mountains and valleys surrounding the town, I can''t think of a place anywhere in the world I''d prefer to be.
