The Costa del Sol is a privileged place, not only for those who live there, but also for those who decide to spend some time throughout the year on an occasional basis or simply for a few days' holiday. This area of Spain boasts between 240 and 300 days of sunshine a year, and an excellent diet and gastronomy, with fresh and healthy local produce. As a result, more and more foreigners are deciding to buy property here in order to enjoy all its benefits as a second home, perhaps with a view to moving to the country once they reach retirement age.
Weather in Malaga and Scandinavia
The Scandinavian countries do not stand out for the hours of sunshine they have each year or for their balmy temperatures. Many people in these countries seek on their days of rest precisely what they do not have at home: lots of light and sunshine, and a temperate climate. The climate in Scandinavia is very harsh, including cold winters with temperatures below zero for many days of the year. Malaga is an area of Spain where rainfall is rare, sunshine predominates on most days, and temperatures are kept at more than acceptable levels year-round. It is a small paradise for those who want to enjoy the outdoors.
The good connections of Malaga airport allow many foreigners to reach this area in just one flight, direct and non-stop. This is a great advantage, as a direct and frequent connection makes access much more interesting and attracts more tourism. The option of renting a car and driving along the roads of the area is something that more and more tourists are taking advantage of. This allows them to enjoy a house to stay at, either rented or owned, without depending on anything else. The Nordic countries now have many direct flights to Malaga, and more and more are discovering this privileged area.
