I have been reading the weather in Oria is very cold in the winter. What would be the temperatures for night time December to February 

Thanks

Hi,

In that you can have snow during the winter months then temps can drop that low. You can find weather charts for any area on Google Search.

Still lots of Brits live there although acquaintances of ours could not afford heating charges & needed to sell up & move to Turre. Deluxe villa to 2BR apartment.

Best Wishes,

Bob and Sandra

Mojacar Playa and Puerto Lumbreras

We have had snow.at cottage & that's just 60km from coast.

I live in Oria and would not live near the coast as it can get very hot in the summer.  The night temperatures in oct,nov,dec,Jan can drop to 8 or 9.  Feb, Mar and April can drop lower.  I have lived here for 7 years and I have seen snow twice, both in a feb.  On both occasions there was only about an inch covering, the sun came out and it melted in the afternoon.  I have a calorgas fire which is fine for the oct, nov, dec, jan evenings.  I have central heating if I need it for Mar or april.  I have not topped up my oil for two years, most peop!e have wood burners.  What I like about Oria is that it has some sort of seasons unlike the coast.  Most months we have sun in the day time.  I would say on my behalf that Mar and April can be the coldest depending on the year as we can also get cold winds.  So a lot depends on how much you feel the cold.

I hope this helps, if you need any more information please private message me.  Unfortunately people who do not live here can only give you information passed on from others.

Hi,

It really is. Over the last 15yrs we have met so many who visited & purchased in summer not realising how cold it can be in winter. So many residents.ofbinland areas compare it with UK. Certainly.it's hotter than coast.in summer.

Winter we spend most.of.the time at the Mojacar apt.

It's horses for courses of course.

BEST WISHES & have a great festive season.

Bob and Sandra

I’m with ednab on this, we live within the Oria district, but even higher, yes it does snow, and it is cold, but you make adjustments to suit the conditions, i.e. good insulation and heating etc.

The benefits are that, in summer, although it’s hot, it isn’t as humid, and the air has less pollution.

About four years or so ago we decided to move, lower down, but we couldn’t find anywhere we liked better, yes there’d be benefits, but we were losing more, so here we say.

Best wishes for your decision

We have bought a cortijo about 5 km south of Oria and about 2 km from the rambla that we are renovating currently. It took us 12 months to discover the location and we experienced all types of weather. It’s beautiful here and much better weatherwise and scenic wise than any area we have visited. Yes it gets cold in the months of February to April but that is tolerable provided you make provision.

The beauty about the location is Spring, Summer and Autumn is much better than the coastal region. So it’s horses for courses but if you really want an attractive area, Oria is the place! We look forward to our house being completed next year!
