    What Is The Climate In Spain?

    Reviewed by Kathleen Peddicord

    Kathleen is the Live and Invest Overseas Founding Publisher. She has more than 30 years of hands-on experience traveling, living, and buying property around the world.

    The climate in Spain is Mediterranean. Plus, the country enjoys four seasons, though they are not extreme seasons.

    The temperature in all areas of Spain typically ranges between 70°F and 90°F throughout the year.

    Average annual humidity is around 80%.

    Mountainous regions and any area above sea level may experience cooler temperatures and lower humidity. Spain receives little rainfall per year, most regions receive less than 25 inches of rain per year.

    As in any country, weather depends on your region, but generally Spain enjoys a warm, stable climate, with little temperature fluctuation from season to season.

    Best Time To Visit Spain

    The best time to visit Spain would be spring (April-June) and early autumn (September-October). You’ll get pleasant temperatures and not to much rain. But, be aware that in July and August can be very warm and crowded in Spain because of the high season.

    Spanish Winter: December to February

    Spanish Summer: May to September

    Spain has an average 3,000 annual sunshine hours. So, you can expect to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle most of the year…

    The Andalucía region is the hottest part of all western Europe.

    In Seville, daytime temperatures in winter rarely drop below 60 degrees. But, if you can’t stand the intense heat of high summer, cities like Málaga and Valencia provide a more comfortable climate.

    However, if you want a taste of winter chill, you’ll find snow to the north in the Pyrenees, and south in the Sierra Nevada. Both provide skiing and snowboarding during winter months.

    The Good Life In Spain

    OK,Spainisn’t off-radar by any means, but it is one of the most affordable countries in Western Europe—and which is still welcoming foreigner investors and residents, to boot.

    Spain is the second-largest country in Western Europe both in size and in population, which means the lifestyles here are as diverse as they come… settle in a bustling city, in a resort-style beach community, in the rugged mountains or the dessert of the north, on an unknown stretch of coastline that sees no tourists, on your own farm in this fertile land known as “the garden of Europe” for how much produce it provides its neighbors…

    And there are no shortage of expats here, though you can easily avoid them if you’re looking for a more authentically Spanish experience in your new life overseas. Plus, Spanish is one of the easier languages to learn.

    The Iberian Peninsula is known for having lower costs of living than the rest of Western Europe, quoted as being up to 30% cheaper on average than other EU regions.

    But prices—for real estate and day-to-day living—have been pushed up in the last 10 years or so throughout much of Portugal, especially Lisbon and the renowned Algarve region.

    In Spain, costs have inflated less appreciably in recent years and even in big, cosmopolitan cities, it’s still possible to get a menu del día (a three-course meal) for 10 euros, or a generous breakfast, complete with coffee and juice, for 4 euros. In rural areas or on the less touristed costas, prices are even better.

    The health care is the 7th best in the world according to WHO, and the country offers a Golden Visa program, granting North Americans full access to the Schengen Area.

    My Favorite Part Of Spain

    Spain should be near the top of your list for a retirement or second home destination. The lifestyle is fantastic… the cost of living is relatively low… the cost of properties is reasonable… and the language is fairly familiar. Spain, in fact, was my first overseas destination, years before my wife and I finally settled in South America. I’ve enjoyed repeated visits to Spain’s major cities, and the countless attractions they hold. From Madrid to Barcelona… and from Granada to...
