Winter Sun

Hi, can anyone recommend a reasonably priced hotel and resort / destination with pleasant surroundings / views / landscape that would guarantee warm sunshine over the Christmas period. It is for two people, one is 60 yrs old.

Any advice / suggestion would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

For the best sun at that time of year, you should consider Las Canarias /Canary Island.

I agree, Canary islands. the South end of Tenerife is usually sunny. But still. its not "hot" then. but sunny and nice. Try the area around Los Gigantes with these huge dramatic cliffs.

Enjoy!

I visit the south of Tenerife regularly in the winter months as I have a home there and the weather is usually good. There is often a little more cloud than in the summer and occasional rain but if it is clear and the sun is shining, you can expect temperatures in during the day to rise to the mid-twenties.

Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol (fly into Malaga) has a daily average high tmperature of 62 degrees in December. The Sol Melia chain has 4 nice hotels that are centrally located there & you can get great deals on their website solmelia.com. Rain is always a possibility. We were ther 4 years ago for 2 weeks over Christmas & had 2 days of rain. We loved Torremolinos & are going for the 3rd time next month.
