What are the best times to travel to France?
In the Mediterranean regions, the best times are spring and autumn, especially the months of May and June and the first half of September (in the second half, the temperature is still pleasant, but the rains may become abundant, even with the risk of floods). In mid-summer (July-August), however, the heat is usually bearable because of the sea breezes, at least along the coasts.
If you want to go on a beach holiday, the Mediterranean Sea (where the best months are July and August) is preferable to the Atlantic Ocean (especially the northern part, which is cooler) because both sea and air temperatures are higher, and sunshine is more frequent as well. On the Atlantic, however, the west coast is definitely preferable to the north coast, especially from La Rochelle to the south.
The best time for swimming and sun bathing on the French Riviera is the summer, from mid-June to August. If you plan to visit cities, you may want to avoid the hottest months, so you can choose the months of May, June and the first half of September, bearing in mind that sometimes it can rain, when depressions affect the area, or in the form of afternoon thunderstorm.
What to pack on your Yachting Vacations in France?
In summer in Brittany and Normandy, bring clothes for spring and autumn, a T-shirt for warm days, but also a jacket, a raincoat or umbrella.
In the rest of the country, light clothing, but also long pants, a jacket and a sweater for the evening and cooler days; a raincoat or umbrella.
In the mountains, hiking shoes, sunscreen and sunglasses. A jacket for the evening.
