The Climate of Andalucía

malaga properties for sale
The climate in Andalucía is enjoyable all year round.

The Costa del Sol has the best climate in the whole of Europe, with an incredible 325 days of sunshine each year. Even during the winter months, it’s not unusual to be basking in glorious sunshine  Imagine relaxing on your own private terrace of your property in Spain or beside your swimming pool with a cool drink in hand, your nearby friends, partner or children all having the time of their lives enjoying your property and Spain's climate...

But it also makes sound business sense. A sunny climate means that investing in property in Andalucia, on the Costa del Sol will always be a good financial proposition.

Lifestyle in Andalucía

The activities available on the Costa del Sol are bewildering. Beach life is of course a huge draw with some of the cleanest stretches of coast anywhere in Europe, often being awarded the European Blue Flag of merit. Along with that, comes the restaurants, bars and clubs for those of you who like to party into the night.

For sporty individuals there’s waterskiing, yacht trips, adventure parks, tennis, quad-biking and even skiing (yes, skiing is just a two hour drive away in the Sierra Nevada mountains). And of course Golf. It’s no co-incidence that the Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf, with some of the world’s premier championships having being held here over the years, including the 1997 Ryder Cup.

Those of you who relish a shopping expedition will be more than satisfied at the choice of modern indoor centres or smaller designer boutiques. Southern Spain also boasts several cinema complexes, , aqua parks, top quality international schools and a modern efficient health service.

In short, the Costa del Sol is for people who like to live life to the full and enjoy the best things it can offer. If you prefer you can just ignore all that, sit back, relax and take in nothing more than peace and quiet surrounded by nature in your property, within the numerous protected wildlife parks that epitomise inland Andalucia.

Communications in Andalucía

Communication has vastly improved in Andalucía recent years.

Flying to Andalucia has never been easier, with several low-cost airlines from across northern Europe competing for business to Malaga International Airport. The airport itself is currently being expanded to cope with the demand, whilst the upgraded motorway network now provides a fast efficient connection to any area along the coast. The development of a new high speed rail link between Malaga and Madrid, along with widespread internet access are just two more reasons why communication networks in southern Spain are now better than ever. There are now also fantastic connections to the Costa Del Sol Via Gibraltar and Seville.


Spanish Tradition

Typical Andalucian scenery.

Stunning mountain views, lakes, countryside and traditional living just twenty minutes drive inland from anywhere on the coast. Picturesque white-washed villages with their cobbled streets, tiny churches, market squares and typically friendly Spanish welcome, all await the enquiring traveller. This is often a surprise to visitors who may only get a glimpse of the Costa del Sol from its coastal attractions.


From the rolling hills of Granada to the Pueblos Blancos or White Villages or Mijas & Coin to The Valleys of Ronda to the imposing rock of Gibraltar, Andalucia bears the legacy of centuries of culture from civilisations as diverse as the Spanish and the Moors, all waiting to be explored.
