As two of the most popular European destinations for full-timing motor-homers seeking winter sun, Spain and Portugal actually offer year-round interest. Yes, it can get mighty hot in summer. But then with Spain as mountainous as it is, and rectangular Portugal edged by coastline on two of its four borders, there are opportunities to escape the heat and feel the breeze of the uplands or the sea.
Look out for classic scenes of the Iberian Peninsula – idyllic olive and citrus groves, stunted cork oaks, the sweet blossom of the almond trees, the vineyards of Rioja (Spain) and Porto (Portugal), and the Moorish influence in the architecture of both countries.
It doesn’t matter what time of year you go, there will be something to tempt you for an all-year-round tour of Iberia.
