Southern Spain Climate
Malaga province enjoys the mildest climate in Europe, with an average of more than 300 days sunshine and low humidity throughout the year.Summers are long, hot and dry. The winter months are usually warmer than early summer in England, with some seasonal rain. Pink clouds of almond blossom heralds the coming of Spring in January, and by March the heady scent of orange blossom permeates the breeze. An ideal time for rambling amongst the myriad varieties of mountain wild flowers.
