Spain, Portugal, or South of France?

I have a free round trip ticket into and out of Frankfurt in late Feb.

I have been all over Germany and prefer to take a cheap flight somewhere warmer.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on where they would go?

How much warmer?

Even southern Spain isn't beach weather then. No place in europe is.

How about the Azores or the Canary Islands? There are some cheap flights our of Germany to Tenerife for sure, I do not know about the Azores.

You could check out www.airberlin.com for possible Mediterranean destinations, and also to the Canary Islands.

In Continental Europe, you probably won't find warmer climate than at the Costa del Sol in Southern Spain, which would make Malaga your destination.

Southern Portugal, the Algarve coast, should also be mild to warm.

"Warm" may be anything around 20C at that time of the year. So it won't be exactly the Carribean.

The Azores are somewhat hard to reach, and usually more costly.
The Canary Islands are easy to reach, and so is the island of Madeira which belongs to Portugal.

Madeira gets less mass tourism than the Canaries, but offers a huge range of vegetation - but no great beaches.

Madeira and the Canaries have somewhat of an A/C climate, meaning that the temperatures usually hover around 20-25C.
