    Hi Everyone

    We are heading down to Spain for Xmas (down the east coast / Med), but we are not sure how far south to go.

    What is the typical temperature difference between the North and South Spain->
    Barcelona / Valencia / Malaga?

    What sort of temperatures can I expect in the day/night, what is a typical day time temperature if the sun is out (reach 20C?) & how cold when the sun drops, hopefully a lot less rain than the UK?

    Thanks

    N&K

    Hi

    Your best bet for decent weather in Spain at Xmas is Almeria in the SE corner, it is the driest part of Spain, (they made the spaghetti westerns here) , we spent Xmas 2006 there, daytime temp into the low 20s, night time below freezing..

    There is a good site at Roquetas de Mar

    I also recommend Roquetas der Mar (Under Almeria in the Caravan Club book). We have stayed there for a month either Jan or Feb for the past few years and there is a good but small Brit 6 contingent there. I usually get to wear my shorts every day but like
    everywhere it will get overcast and cool at times. have a good trip and may see you there as we leave on 6 Jan 09:thumb:

    Hi, this is great info, thanks. Unfortunately we wont see you, we leave Dec 6th and come back Jan 5th. We'll wave to you going the other way :ROFLMAO:

    Is this the site you stay in ? Camping Bungalows Roquetas - Roquetas de Mar (Almería) Andalucía - Spain

    We are in the Caravan Club, but dont have the Euro book? Is it worth getting? I have the ACSI card and DVD with euro campsites, which is great to search for winter sites.
