France is divided into four distinct areas of climate: oceanic, continental, mountain, and Mediterranean. The oceanic climate is spread amongst the western parts of the country, where the temperatures stay relatively consistent. The average winter ranges in temperature from 32°F to 46°F (0°C to 8°C), with the average summer ranging from 61°F to 75°F (16°C to 24°C). When traveling in France, many people recommend spending time in the southern parts of the country. This is where the weather is warm, and the sun always shines, making for the ideal destination for an unforgettable sailing holiday.
The summer months of June to August offer fantastic weather and ample sunshine, but these are also the most tourist-heavy months of the year. This means that hot spots are far more crowded than usual, and prices tend to be at their highest. To avoid inflated prices and mass tourism that makes it difficult to practice social distancing, there are a few more opportune periods to consider. From March to May and September to November; the weather is moderate, the prices are lower, and there are fewer tourists. For the best possible sailing holiday in France, we recommend planning your travels in one of these time periods instead of the busy summer.
With so many bodies of water flowing through and around France, the country offers an endless supply of possibilities when it comes to sailing. Whether you want to cruise down the glamorous Côte d'Azur or sail along the picturesque Atlantic Coast, the surrounding landscape wherever you go is guaranteed to offer incredible views. From the Seine River which flows through the magnificent city of Paris to the Garonne River which flows from the world-famous Pyrenees, you truly can’t go wrong with a yacht rental anywhere in France. It’s time to finally treat yourself to the sailing holiday you’ve long deserved and explore the beauty of France!
