As I sit here working on a computer I find myself contemplating one of the main reasons we considered moving out to this region of Spain – notably, its. Truth is, whilst temperate it most certainly seems to be if you live in Northern Europe, to we locals its damn cold at this time of year and, rather unfortunately, most Spanish properties are neither built for the cold nor have any real form of heating. Its as I consider this fact I find myself reminded of the spanish saying “Nueve meses de invierno, tres meses de infierno” which translates to “Nine months of winter, three months of hell”. In , for example, this is most apt because of the exceedingly hot summer – but cold winter. Once that sun is off you its remarkable how quick the temperature drops.
If you are considering moving out here, and are purchasing a property, then do give a little consideration to the heating because, believe me, its not as temperate as the brochures indicate!
