Hi all,

I would like to introduce myself and share my recent winter break experience to the southern region of Spain.

I am a mature, retired, fit, outgoing single guy residing in the Cotswolds who hates the dark cold winter months in the

U K,  so I rented an apartment in the mountain village of Competa for December, January and February.

It was fabulous, the clean fresh mountain air with sunshine most days and only 3 days of 3 months made the winter in Spain a great outside experience better than some U K summers.

The daylight hours made a huge difference with the shortest day being light until nearly 6 p.m. with stunning sunsets over the mountains.

The food was wonderful fish being my favourite with great wines dining al fresco during the sunny days more times than in the U K summer months..

I am now planning my return visit for next winter and would welcome any feedback from simalar sun seekers or residents in Spain.

Regards Tony




Retirement is the day you stop working and start living.

Hi Tony.

We went to Spain for 10 days at Christmas and again last week. The difference between Spain and the UK weatherwise in Winter just makes you feel more alive, healthier, fitter and active. I am sat at home at the moment with gale force winds blowing, and rain lashing the windows. Roll on 7 weeks when we can get back to Spain again.
