Enough of cold winters? Ready to move abroad to the sun?

Enough of cold winters? Ready to move abroad to the sun?

Winter got you thinking you need some heat? You may not be able to change the weather, but you can change your future winter forecast by making a move or investment in a holiday home in the sun and say, bye bye winter!


Burrrr... The time of year where fluffy snow flakes bring nostalgic scenes of a whimsical winter wonderland are quickly passing, leaving behind the harsh reality that the coldest of winter days are still ahead. For those who love hitting the ski slopes and taking on winter sports this is a happy time of year. Not so much, for those with sunnier souls where this is a painful season involving many layers of sweaters, socks, scarves, ear muffs, blankets and all things warm to ward off what feels like never-ending winter days and nights.  

Man may not yet have figured out how to control the weather, but that doesn't mean you have to brave the elements every single year. Why not make the decision that all your future winters are going to be much, much more pleasant - with long walks along golden beaches, and bucket-loads of sunshine! Yes, you can shake off the chills and experience a much warmer climate where winter becomes a season you look forward to. 

In southern Portugal and Spain winter includes bright sunshine and temperatures nudging 20 degrees daily, without a snow flake in sight! Whether you choose to spend months at a time, or just a quick getaway to the sunny south, you have the option of choosing your forecast. One where you can bundle up from freezing temperatures, or one where the only place you'll find ice is in your cocktail. 

So if you think you're part of the 99% who would love to swap the scarves and boots for sunglasses and sunscreen, then keep reading!
