- Times to Travel: France enjoys a moderate climate with regional and obvious seasonal variations. Most travelers agree that the late spring and early summer months are the best time to visit France, as the weather is consistently at its best. The sea is warm enough for swimming between June and September, and as early as May along the Cote d'Azur.
In August most locals escape the city heat and take their month-long vacations. The beaches and mountains are subsequently packed, and many shops and restaurants are closed during this period.
Fall and early winters are often quite pleasant along the Bay of Biscay and Mediterranean Sea coastlines. The ski season runs between December and April, and the world class resorts in the Alps and Pyrenees are popular destinations.
