We are an older couple in the UK looking for a winter sun destination where we can rent a property from approx the middle of January to March. Cannot afford long haul, went to Mexico this Feb., scorching weather but too expensive to do year on year. Just went out to Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol for four days to see if this is a possible contender, but it was often chilly, windy, and wet, and has been like that all of March, with it looking like a wet start to April. Are thinking of the Canaries but someone said the weather in these Islands has been bad for the past couple of months.
Is this a vain hope or just a very bad year weather wise for these destinations which we believed were winter sun magnets??
Any ideas about other possible locations that would not be long haul from the UK?
