The Weather in Provence & on the Riviera

On the sophisticated French Riviera, the Mediterranean weather will charm travelers with its hot and sunny days. As well as in the southern part of France, Provence, where the pleasant mild weather and shining sun will emphasizes the colorful houses. For those who want to avoid strong heat - we don’t recommend these regions in July and August.

The Weather on the South West of France

In the South West, in the renowned Bordeaux and Dordogne regions, the temperate climate contributes to the uniqueness of the delicious and renowned wines as well as the enjoyment of your trip to France. In Summer, days may be warm but with the Atlantic Ocean, nights are often cool.

The Weather in the North West of France

The northern west of France including BrittanyNormandy and the Loire Valley offers a mild oceanic weather, with warm summer and cool winter sprinkled with rainfalls. Spring and Fall seasons are very enjoyable and Summers are not too hot so you can definitely plan a trip to these regions all year long - the best season being from mid March till mid November.

My wife and I and two friends decided we would like to visit France and by chance I found Emilie's website and initiated an online conversation with her over a year ago. We really did not know what we wanted to do, nor where we wanted to go and so our planning became a moving feast, most ably supported by Emilie. How she ever put up with our …
