Hi we will be spending our first winter months in Camposol this year. I know it's a bit subjective but does it get very cold at night if villa doesn't have central heating? Only a fire and heat option on 2 ac units. Is a duvet needed? Summer tog perhaps?

As soon as the sun starts to go down temperatures start to drop. You will need the fire lit, ours is a wood burner and after it has warmed the seating area we open doors to allow the heat into the bedrooms. We also use the oven fir casseroles pies etc this also provides heat. Yes you will need duvet and something more substantial than summer weight, ours is 15 tog and no we are nit wimps. Spanish houses/villas are built to keep cool, hence tiled floors etc. Some people have even helped by insulating walls and ceilings.

Agree with Ginger - you will need winter weight duvet (unless you run the aircon all night to keep room warmish), slippers (cold floors) and jumpers.

You will rarely see ice anywhere but it can get bitterly cold with winds.

Get the aircon serviced as the efficiency can be down with dirty filters and possible low pressure.

Make the most of the sunny days!

Agree with the above except the no ice comment.

On Camposol you will see ice on your car windscreen now and then.

We use electric blankets to warm the bed up before sleeping. Rugs are good for tiled floors. Use oil gilled radiators n some heating devices. Choose the right electricity plan n can save you a small fortune.

Hola    just put a jumper on      that is what I done last winter    and used the heat setting on A/C  just twice    to save buying rugs    try socks

I had a lot of heat loss    then I looked for help    mind my door was always open

I bought a large roll of bubble wrap last year 

My wife and I wrap it around our legs every evening.

It saves electric.

We do take it off when we go to bed though.
