Please excuse the length of the context before I get to the question!
I have Residencia in Spain - and have a very small ‘man cave’ in a typical Spanish working town. I have been rebuilding (very slowly) a farmhouse in the Charente for over 20 years!
I am still mostly resident in the U.K. for work reasons but we work all over Europe. I am edging quickly to retirement and wish to spend much more time in my home in France (it’s not in anyway a palace but is very the heart of the family for sons and grandchildren).
I would have gone for a carte de sejour In France But was advised Residencia in Spain was very much easier.
So, now the question:
If I have Residencia in Spain and spend time there, will this count against the 90 days I can stay in another EU country after January?
I would have gone the carte de sejour route as I consider France my major residence but Residencia was simple and quick and life was complex!
Thanks for wading through this question
