Escape to Sunny Andalucia! Sunny Delight for Malaga Reprinted from The Olive Press, Andalucia's news publication June 18, 2008 It’s official: Malaga resort of Torrox has Europe’s best climate The sign that greets you as you enter the resort could be dismissed as a piece of shameless self-promotion.
But Torrox can indeed claim to have the best climate in Europe – and have the paperwork to back it up. A study of 21 Mediterranean municipalities, all of whom make a similar statement, has found that the weather of the town cannot be bettered anywhere on the continent.
The report – which was compiled over six years by weather forecast company MeteoGroup – concluded that the geographic location of Torrox resulted in excellent year round temperatures.
With it being open to the sea to the south and surrounded by mountains to the north, the resort’s average annual temperature is 65 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a most beautiful part of Spain Spectacular mountain areas, comprising of terraced hillsides and valleys with orchards of orange, avocado and olive trees and historic Moorish whitewashed villages perched in the hills.
We explore varied terrain with spectacular views of the coasts, the surrounding whitewashed villages, mountains and a variety of flora and fauna.
Don't just enjoy a 'balcony view' (although you will have that!), the Pueblos Blancos of Andalucia are balcony towns: perched amid the picturesque rocky peaks of Malaga. The White Towns' are named for the perpetually whitewashed buildings - topped with tile roofs and decorated with a profusion of potted flowers and wrought-iron grilles - that makes the nearly two dozen villages sparkle in the bright Andalucian light.
The best seasons to visit are the spring and fall. The climate is mild and the olive groves and indigenous trees are verdant and aromatic. As with the Pueblos Blancos, culture and countryside combine to make this a truly memorable part of Spain.
