WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT France ?
Spring from April to June
Starting with the Easter school holidays, many shops, restaurants and hotels will open at this time.
The weather in April is hard to tell, since it can rain everyday or you can already enjoy a pre summer weather.
In France, May is the month of getaways and short stays since we have many holidays (1st May, 8th May, and religious celebrations like Whit Monday and Ascension.
June is definitely a nice and warm month to visit France. Weather is very nice, and if you go on vacation on the seaside, you can already enjoy a bath in the sea.
Summer in July and August
July and August are the high season peeks in France.
Everthing is open, lots of concerts, festivals, shows everywhere in France.
The weather is hot in the South of France, more chilly in Paris and North
If you love movements, action, summer is the best period for you.
However, these months are also high season in prices, and your budget will change a lot if you travel in a touristic area.
As the country is crowdy, it means also more traffic on the road or in any means of transport.
You should note that in August, quite all societies close in Paris and this is the month of vacation for a lot of Parisians.
So Paris in August will be less crowded than Britain, Corsica or French Riviera.
Automn in September and October
Autumn is such a lovely time to visit France.
French families go back home since it is school time.
The weather is still so nice and warm.
You can enjoy your stay differently, skip the lines easily and relax.
