Me, I'd love to escape the hot, humid summers of NC and go to the mountains from July-Oct. The winters here are fine..I just prefer cooler, more temperate summer weather. And the swarms of tourists come in the summer.

Northern Michigan would be fine for summers...or British Columbia..or any temperate mountain clime that's affordable. Portugal, maybe?

It might work to swap our home for the months we'd like to go away. Our area is great for boating, beaches, and fishing. We think about this a lot.

They are looking at New Mexico for summer 2016.
I've been thinking of doing this same thing from Austin, TX. July-Sept is brutally hot here.

Last year I spent part of July in Wyoming where it is much cooler and less humid, that was nice.

The January peak Cedar Fever allergy season is underway here now and is very hard me. I'm thinking, why the heck not go someplace tropical for the month and avoid this.

I will have to look into VRBO.

I realize this thread is about foreign destinations, but I wanted you to know that you don't have to go out of the country to enjoy much warmer winter climates, where you would feel perfectly safe and comfortable. Such as Florida, the southern coast of Texas, Tucson, AZ, San Diego, CA, etc.

You have options...
