Does such a place exist??
Hi Hully - go to any of the Andalucian towns in Spain. Cannot guarantee you'll want to jump into a pool, but it'll be nice, with great atmosphere, great people and great food. How about Seville?
Thanks Snowie, I have been to Seville, but not for ages, I'll put it on the list!
I imagine the Canary Islands, as it seems to be the most popular winter shorthaul destination.
Canaries - deffo warm, not dead & thought they are not my 100% cup of tea I can put up with a lot for the sake of sunshine & sea swimming in December. Lanzarote has lots of amzing things to do/see - google Caesar Manriques for a start.
I dun Lanzarote Loved the volcano park
Have also dun Fuerteventura - not so much to do as Lazarote but great surfing!Also Tenerife - but basically swam loads & sat in deck chair with kindle or in a bar for most of the 10 days .North Africa? Morocco? Haven't been but have heard good reports & though not Europe - it's only 3.5hrs flying.
go a bit further and to South Africa.
Sadly has to be Yerp for reasons beyond my control.
I believe such a place doesn't exist!
I think if guaranteed weather (or as guaranteed as it can be) is important to you I would go for the cannaries. Other bits of S. Europe can be bloody cold then.Just thought - BIL & SIL have been to Madeira a couple of times & loved it - lots to do & some amazing walking with great trails etc.
Canary Islands for sure.you will still be able to celebrate the day - but without having to keep your coat on.I'd love to bugger off abroad for xmas and ny, but dh won't..
