Our honest opinion on Spain...

"We like to think of ourselves as holiday experts. We love them. We spend all day looking at them. Holidays run through our veins. And when we talk about them, a lot of the time we come back to Spain as our favourite. The vast amount of places to stay, history to explore, food to eat and beaches to relax on. It's all just brilliant. So, take it from us when we say that Spain is the top dog. ¡Viva España!"

Weather in Spain

























Spain’s southern region, Andalucía, is a paradise for sun lovers. Hot, hot summers are perfect for a summer jolly. Even in winter, people are often seen sipping sangria on sun-drenched terraces, with temperatures maintaining a pleasant 15-20°C.

The northern areas like Catalonia and the Basque Country tell a slightly different tale. Although still sun-drenched for a lot of the year, you might encounter a few more showers and cooler temperatures. Summer weather brings the proper Spanish sun we know and love with toasty temps in the high 20s and low 30s. In the milder spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) months, averages float around 15-20°C. Come winter, the temperature dips to a cool 10-15°C. But hey, there's something romantic about Barcelona in the rain, don't you think?

Then, we have the central plateau, a bit of a thrill ride. In scorching summer months (June-August), the mercury soars and can often hit the 30°C mark, while winter sees temperatures sometimes falling to a brisk 5-10°C. Quite a rollercoaster, eh?

And who could forget the Spanish islands, the Canaries and the Balearics? They do their own thing, boasting fabulous weather all year round.

The bottom line? The weather in Spain doesn't play by the rules. It's a sun-soaked whirlwind with a dash of drama and a whole lot of charm. So, pack your sunscreen and say "hola" to endless blue skies!
