Cost of Living Costa Brava Spain
(Supermarket Prices)

A lot of our visitors want to know what the average cost of living on the Costa Brava is, particularly the cost of food in the supermarket.

So, we have set out below the cost of common foods and household products from several of our supermarket trips in 2013.

Hopefully this list of the average costs of goods will help you in your holiday planning.
