We call this our 'Scenic' season because spring and autumn are the most beautiful times of year to visit. In spring, wild flowers carpet the countryside with fields of firey-red poppies and hillsides of honey-scented yellow broom. In autumn, all the vines and the trees that line the roads turn vibrant shades of red, orange and gold. Tempreatures are cool (15C) to warm (25C) - and it's possible to sunbathe and swim. It's more relaxing than summer - perfect for walking, biking, sightseeing, wine tasting and enjoying seafood on the coast.
