I was looking around and have not found any place in Europe where the average January maximum is at least 20C. Does such a place exist?

If you include the Canary Islands, yes.

It is a bit tricky. Politcally they are part of Europe, but in a way it is like saying the warmest Jan high in America is in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Yeah fair enough. What about Cyprus? Limassol is about the warmest there at 18C? Andalusia region in Spain is possibly the warmest, maybe around Malaga or Cadiz. I think Sevilla is cooler.

Most people go to the Canary Islands for some winter sun, at least people I know anyway.

18c is our average high in july lol. I cannot imagine any airmass warm enough to sustain 18c in january. Even with 11c uppers we struggle to exceed 12c

For this thread europe is agreed on continential boundaries. Canaries are not in europe.

^^ the OP did not specify anything, so perhaps we should wait for him to clarify the area that he is referring to? I'm sure he's a big boy and can speak for himself.
