Monte Carlo is located in the European microstate of Monaco. With warm weather on the horizon, Monte Carlo is a great vacation spot to escape the winters.
One reason that should be enough? Maltese are proud of their 300 days of sunshine in a year.
Gibraltar is another great, sunny spot to escape the winter blues. This British Overseas Territory is located on the southern tip of Spain, right where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean.
Menton is a beautiful winter sun destination on the French Riviera, located in the south of France. It is actually just a few miles from the border of Italy.
Madeira is a Portuguese island in the Atlantic Ocean, more or less in front of Morocco in Africa. This excellent location means that during the winter Madeira has more sun and milder temperatures than in the rest of Europe.
Montenegro is one of those places where you can experience both the cold and the warm beaches in the same month. One of the best things about Montenegro is the mild climate that makes it perfect for those trips where you want to get away from the frigid cold and into the winter sun in Europe.
