where should I spend 3-4 months in Spain?

Jump to last reply

After I retire at the end of this year, my wife (59) and I (65) will be spending about six months next year (May-October) in Europe. May and June will be in Siracusa, Italy (Sicily). I speak some Italian and I want to become fluent. I then want to go to Spain for 3-4 months (July-October) so that my wife can learn to speak Spanish. I am a doctor and she is a CPA.
We enjoy photography, cooking, meeting new people and just absorbing the culture of an area. We are not beach people and we would prefer an area with beautiful weather. We live in Florida and don't mind the heat. We will be looking for an apartment to rent for the long period of time in Spain. We prefer to cook most of our meals so a location with nearby supermarkets is important.
We do not plan to have a car and would like to find a city with good possibilities for transportation both within the city and to get to the outlying areas. We will rent a car for a few longer sightseeing trips.
We are considering the Malaga area or Valencia or possibly north of Barcelona (Girona). We are looking for suggestions for one place which will fulfill all of these criteria.
I speak Spanish but will need to have some instruction since most of my experience is in Latin America.
Thanks.
