We don't have ice and snow in Oregon unless you're living on a mountain. I lived in Portland five years and have only seen snow one time and it lasted one day. Oregon is great.

Oregon is indeed a great place to live, but snow is a frequent winter occurence in many parts of the state located east of the Cascades.

And nothing else.
I cant find it.

Best is EUrope since I'm EUropean, but I can live anywhere. Live like that now but get my share of of down to -25 C or worse, some weeks with ice on the roads, a little snow is ok otherwise.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is near ideal but an small island in the ocean, same with Honolulu as have disasters also.
UK seems to be very rainy.
Southern France is near my ideal but they have a law against one of my interests, as are connected to US (Ill & Az), so I dont mind USA but cant find any place. Thought of Ill in summertime and Az in wintertime, prefer to stay in one place. Otherwise nice parts of US goes off for disaster-warnings.

Many like to have it as I suggest, please avoid suggesting what we dont like, only something near it.
You could always try the 51st state of the USA in the South Pacific - good old oz. Really depends on how "hot" you mean hot is - Brisbane can get up to about 40 celsius rarely ever rains and gets a little humid in summer but not as bad as say the really tropical countries. Otherwse its a democratic welfare state that speaks english. The only really natural disasters in Brisbane are bushfires or Pauline Hanson - start going south and it gets a little colder during winter - no snow or anything just cold enough for a heater.

Why should one not move to the US?

Anyway, good luck!

Default 2 places

as someone said earlier, there is no perfect place, but there might be two
live one place during warm months, another during cold months
yes, yes, can be expensive...or disruptive to one's life...or both
kona on the big island in the winter, taos, nm in the summer
I'm sure there are two places like these in europe
bonne chance in finding your place

This type of place is unrealistic..you pretty much came out and described a perfect place, but if I had to give you an honest answer I would have to say Santa Barbara, CA or Cape Hatteras, NC..I don't know much about Europe but I heard Milan and Madrid were very nice places as well.

someone stated they have ---have only seen snow one time ---

That peobably is about the same number of times (one) that you see the sun in winter also.

Maybe some people enjoy clouds/mist/ drizzle day after day all winter long.
