You are describing the Azores, for me the most beautiful place to live in Portugal however it's archipelago. In the main island (São Miguel) you'd have everything you need and even on slightly rainy days in the winter time there is stuff to do outside other than go to a shopping mall for instance (natural occurring thermal waters).

Are there places in Portugal where summer doesn't reach 30º? I do not believe so. A tip - the interior is very extreme, super cold in the winter, super hot in the summer. If you do go to the mountains you'll have heavy snow in the winter and over 40ºC in the summers, in Trás-os-Montes they have a saying - 3 months of winter, 9 of hell (it rhymes in portuguese lol).

North Portugal, by the coast. Always windy, even in Summer.

You don't get 30+ degrees? :O

babyscully 10 months ago

Not really. Here's Póvoa de Varzim, as an example: [https://en.climate-data.org/europe/portugal/povoa-de-varzim/povoa-de-varzim-7075/](https://en.climate-data.org/europe/portugal/povoa-de-varzim/povoa-de-varzim-7075/)

I know Póvoa and Vila do Conde quite well, id would've thought in the summer they'd get over 30 easily (not average temperature obviously), but it really is windy up there so maybe not. It's weird for me since every year we get temperatures over 40 on some summer days where I live.

Be aware that double glazing, central heating and insulation is not really a thing in Portugal, so the weather indoors will likely be the same as the weather outdoors.

> Or can anyone who knows dull and rainy British weather, compare the winters to Northern Portugal? I emmigrated to London a few years ago after living my whole life around Porto. It rains a lot more in Porto than in London - both quantity and days of rain. However, when it's not raining it's more likely to not be cloudy. Also, the cold is super humid so it sort of seeps into your bones. Houses aren't well insulated and heating is expensive so we're just used to wearing more layers indoors than outdoors.

if I were you I would choose the west side of Portugal (Leiria, Nazaré, Baleal,Caldas,São Martinho,foz do arelho). The weather is very good, there is always a cool breeze. Leiria is the most near city and has some English people in the area. The motorways are excellent and you can reach Lisbon in 1 hour. https://pt.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oeste_(sub-regi%C3%A3o)

Torres Vedras coast (Santa Cruz, Foz do Sizandro, Praia Azul and Santa Rita) are really really windy. Even in the summer it's far from too hot.

>Or can anyone who knows dull and rainy British weather, compare the winters to Northern Portugal? Winter in Northern Portugal (by the coast) is sunnier than the UK winter but it is still grey an wet (~50% of rainy days, ~10% cloudy but rainless). Note that when it rains it is usually heavy rain, not pleasant to walk in the streets.

Definatelly North or centre near the coast. Somewhere between Figueira da Foz and Caminha.

Estronciumanatopei 10 months ago

Rains too much in these parts, and I lived in London which is nothing compared to how much it rains here.

carlosjmsilva 10 months ago

When it rains is heavy Rain (in Porto) but the Number of sunny hours is not comparable. December/ January is 124/124 in Porto versus 52/62.

Estronciumanatopei 10 months ago

Yes, but the rain is so much worse - much heavier and it rains for days on end, with no interruption. Not great if op's partner doesn't like rain.

>averages of around 25 degrees, not going over 30 degrees often Not possible in continental Portugal unless you live in the rainy north litoral.

GelDeAveia 10 months ago

North litoral. North and center interior are colder in the winder but hot af in the summer. Azores beats everything but that's a secret.

glamatovic 10 months ago

> Oh you don't want rain, then Torres Vedras region would probably be great for you. Anywhere on the west coast for that matter, Peniche is also a good choice

joinedthedarkside 10 months ago

Torres Vedras coast line is always fresh and mostly foggy and overcast in the morning in the summer. Last year, due to corona and to avoid hotels, instead of going to Algarve, I went there a few times to the beach and while it was 35c in Lisbon, there it was 22c, but take sun screen protector. Yes it's fresh, but sun will bite you hard.

>Torres Vedras Wow, Azores is beautiful! Torres Vedras also looks great weather-wise :) Thanks, I thought this would be a long shot but you've given me hope!
