With 325 days of sun, low humidity and little rain, this is the mildest climate in Europe, where much of life is lived in the open air. All the winter months are warmer than early May in London, and flowers bloom throughout. Lunch al fresco can happen even in January, and some gentle sunbathing is nearly always possible. In the strong and brilliant sunshine, it often feels warmer outdoors than in.
By March, spring is well under way and temperatures are often up to midsummer ones in England. After that, nature simply runs riot, with a huge variety of flora and fauna. The long summers here are hot, although tempered by breezes from the sea and the mountains. During this period, Cortijo Romero and its pool form a shady green oasis in the midst of shimmering, dry heat, when a factor 20 sun cream and a long siesta can seem essential!
Swimming is usually from April - October, although our pool is open all year round and some people use it, too! Even if you don't go in, it's a wonderful place to sit or sunbathe at any time. By May, many people can't stay out of the pool and midnight bathing is a regular feature in the hottest months.
Autumn is warm and mellow: like spring, it's a perfect time for walking in the inspiring mountains.
