Being a ski fan & often working abroad means I'm frequently in Euroland & somwhere along the south of France/Italian borders might not be a bad place to park the boat, with a view to staying onboard for a few days at a time.
Isola 2000 is only a few hours from the sea & the Sierra Navada range in spain is handily nearby too.
Suggestions welcome if anyone has any experience or boat yards, moorings etc
Try Malaga. Good flights and decent marina at Benalmadena or on land storage. Benalmadena isn't the best of places in summer but quite nice out of season and the marina is good, has a slip (many don't round there so they rip you off with crane fees) and its pretty reasonable; slip is about 15 E and out of season marina fees about 30-40 E a week. Speak to Paco ( predictably) at Pescatun who can sort on land inside storage and speaks good English to help with any language issues sorting other bits out.
