How Safe Is It To Live Off-Grid In Spain?

by | Off-Grid Spain

How safe is it to live off-grid in Spain? We’re not talking about safety when working with tools or the how-to keep animals safe, but rather about safety relating to criminal activity.

When setting out to build a new life in a different country, you’ll hear all the weird and scary stories: people getting ripped off, off-grid houses getting broken into, criminals targeting homes that are situated off the beaten path… you wonder how to protect your property.

This video was first published in 2021 on my old website, It was moved to in 2022. 

Although I’m not an expert when it comes to criminal activity in Spain, in this video I share our experiences (and that of other people who live off-grid near us – and in other areas). We’ll discuss break-ins and robberies as well as what you can do to protect your home and property in less traditional ways.

If you live off-grid in Spain, what’s your experience with criminal activity? We’d love to hear it in the comments!

Hi, I'm Sandrine!

I live off-grid on an olive and almond farm in Spain, with alpacas and chickens and dogs and all the things. We've got solar panels and water from a borehole, we aim to grow our own food and be more self-sufficient, and we also try to make more time for what's really important in life... Come and join the sunny simple living movement!
