Countries with perfect climates to live in

When it comes to defining the perfect climate a multitude of factors have to be considered.Here is the list of the world’s best climates for living.

When it comes to defining the perfect climate a multitude of factors have to be considered. It is well known that those who live in the North will not feel as comfortable as in the South and vice versa. Some people like snow and rain; others prefer hot, dry weather. It’s difficult to define the “perfect” climate. It really comes down to on-the-ground experience and personal preference. The most favourable climates for living are temperate and Mediterranean, which have moderate temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, etc. 

Here is the list of the world’s best climates for living: 


Greece has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Northern Greece also experiences its fair share of cold, snowy winters in its most mountainous regions. The local climate and the sea air full of iodine are recommended for children with Low immunity and for prophylactic, curative and recreational purposes. According to statistics, one of the reasons people move to Greece is the country’s environmental and climatic conditions, which are beneficial for overall health. 


One of the warmest countries in Europe, Portugal has a Mediterranean and steppe climate. The country can receive up to 3200 hours of sunshine a year, with temperatures in certain areas reaching as high as 45C degrees in summer. The number of sunny days per year affects people’s mood and makes life less stressful. Portugal is a very peaceful country, with a low crime rate. Excellent climate conditions without extreme changes in temperature make for comfortable for living in summer and in winter. The proximity of the ocean and pine wood forests is very good for the health of both children and the older generation. 


A Mediterranean-like climate dominates most of Spain, though the weather tends to be more extreme than a regular Mediterranean climate, with hotter summers and cold winters. The south-east of the country tends to be drier, and the coastline doesn't experience any wet spells. Because of its equable climate, quality of life, and acclaimed public health services the average lifespan in Spain is the highest in Europe; and according to WHO, Spain is ranked 4th in Europe and 7th in the world for advances in medicine. Modern technologies, equipment conditions, and health care professionals are taken into account.


Italy has a variety of climates throughout the country, including a Mediterranean climate along the coastlines, and a continental climate in the northern and central parts of the country. Where the altitudes are higher, winters can be harsh, with large amounts of snowfall, and summers are hot. The coastal areas have mild winters and hot, dry summers. So if you have decided to move to Italy, you may choose the most favourable area to live. 

New Zealand

Due to its location in the southern hemisphere near Australia, New Zealand has a mild and temperate maritime climate. Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, receives more than 2,000 hours of sunshine a year. With all this variation, it's obvious that the climate is equally diverse. While much of the country has a temperate climate, there are sharp contrasts depending on the region. It's warm and tropical in the north, for instance, becoming more temperate as you go further south. The mountainous regions have alpine conditions, with areas west of the mountains being much wetter than those in the east.

Costa Rica

Because Costa Rica is just a few degrees above the Equator its climate is tropical all year round, based solely on the amount of rain the country receives. Its summer rainy season also coincides with the Atlantic hurricane season, when it rains continuously in some parts of the country.

A mountain climate is beneficial for one’s cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Breathing mountain air stimulates blood circulation and metabolism, increases the concentration of red blood cells, improves sleep and calms the nervous system.  If a mountain climate is for you, then you should move to Italy, Switzerland, or France. A wise solution for those who don’t want to move to these countries, but want to improve their health by spending some time there, is to buy a cottage, chalet, or house, so you can go there anytime. 

A sea climate is characterized by an increased concentration of sea salt and ozone in the air. It strengthens the immune system and enhances the adaptive capacity of the body. These days countries such as Spain, Italy, Cyprus, and Greece offer a wide range of properties near the coast. Anyone can choose the type of real estate that they prefer – villas, houses, twin houses, or even luxury apartments. 

A forest-steppe climate is characterized by the absence of extreme temperatures and moderate humidity, and is especially beneficial for patients with cardiovascular diseases.

A forest climate is good for respiratory diseases. It restores the immune system and the nervous system. Essential oils of pine trees, oak, and linden heal the respiratory tract, reducing blood pressure and metabolism.
