bike storage

I am thinking of leaving one of my bikes in Europe, somewhere where its reasonable hot all year round (Southern Spain or Southern Italy ?) I know there is one operating in Germany but that is too cold in the winter.
That way I could fly down to the bike every now and then anytime of the year and take it out for a spin for a few days to get away from the cold weather here.
Any great value suggestions ? Anyone out there in that part of the world got a big garage ?
Maybe we should all try and collate a list of "Friendly" locations that site users would offer for short term or long term storage.

When I rented from MotoTouring in Milan, they had a whole loft full of customers' bikes, which were being stored and maintained for riders who were flying in from the States. I forgot what they charged - I think, it was more than plain storage because it included service/prep before pickup.

Re: bike storage

Milan is too cold in the winter. I need somewhere that is reasonably warm, >17 degrees minimum.
