Why move to Almeria Province

Hot, dry and gloriously diverse, Almeria is the forgotten treasure of southern Spain. You’ll experience the best of this culturally rich region and avoid the crowds.

At the east end of Andalucia, Almeria is home to some of the region’s most dramatic landscapes. It is rich in history, heavy on tradition and loves to party (the Pogues wrote their rowdy hit ‘Fiesta’ after a visit to the region).

The first thing you’ll notice about Almeria is its climate. Hot, arid and dry with an average annual temperature of 19.1 °C (66.4 °F), it is the second warmest and sunniest city in Europe (after Seville). But that doesn’t mean it’s a sun scorched wasteland; the region has an abundance of riches for nature lovers to explore.

You’ll find a land of contrasts; home to one of the most beautiful and ecologically diverse coastlines and Europe’s only desert – made famous by countless spaghetti westerns.

Take Cabo de Gata, a volcanic natural park on the east coast, with coves that are only accessible by foot, it gives visitors the sense that they are discovering new territory. And in the shadow of the eroded mountains of the Desierto de Tabernas, is Níjar, a village with a link to the region’s earliest history, through earthenware ceramics produced using the same techniques as in Phoenician times.

You’ll enjoy some of the clearest skies in Europe as you sit stargazing from your balcony in the evenings. Little wonder that one of the world’s most powerful telescopes has been installed at Cergal in Almeria.

Along a coastline stretching for 214 km you will find some of the most affordable properties in southern Spain. From Almeria city, a working port steeped in Moorish history, you are within easy distance of popular resorts Roquetas de Mar to the south, or Mojácar in the north, which successfully mixes traditional Spanish village life with a lively beach resort. The truly adventurous might like to sample the delights of troglodyte living in the cave houses dotted along the coast!
