Best Location for Month Stay in Spain

Jump to last reply

I'm interested in staying in Spain for a month to work on my Spanish, and I'd like to rent an apartment in a home base. My husband will be with me--we're both 30. Here are my criteria:

-Not a big city
-Big enough to have a decent market, nice cafés, etc.
-Pretty cheap (rent less than $800)
-Less than 2 hours from the coast / water by public transit
-Not touristy (I feel like in a touristy town, I'll learn less Spanish)
-I do not care about the nightlife
-temperatures that stay under 90 most of the time in June and July are preferable (I'm in Texas, so I can handle a few 100+ days, but I'd prefer to escape that!)

Also, at the risk of sounding like an idiot, how do I rent an apartment for just a month? VRBO? I'm not super interested in attending language school, as my grasp of Spanish vocab is pretty good--I just need more daily speaking practice / want to experience a new culture.
