Best Time to Visit France (Weather and Costs)
France is a year-round destination, with countless attractions and reasons to visit throughout the year. I have visited the country more times than I can remember, in all of the seasons. However, the best time to visit France depends on a few factors.
Firstly and most importantly, when deciding when to travel to France, you need to consider what it is that you want to do there.
If you’d like to enjoy the country’s world-class ski resorts, you’re best off visiting in the winter; whereas if you’d prefer to spend time relaxing on France’s stunning Mediterranean beaches, you may want to come when it’s a little warmer.
Overall (outside of the mountains), the summer months tend to coincide with the peak tourist season, when accommodation and other costs are highest and crowds are at their worst. If you’re looking to visit France on a budget, it might be a good idea to travel outside of these months.
Overall Best Time to Visit France
In my opinion, May or September are the best times to go to France.
With its varied landscape and extensive coastline, France has an impressive range of climates ranging from dry and hot Mediterranean in the south to wet and temperate in the north.
However, wherever you are in France, the weather is generally much better in summer than in winter.
Given the increased prices and crowds of the peak summer season (June-August), personally, my favorite time to visit France is either in the late spring (May) or early autumn (September).
Temperatures are still likely to be warm but there will be far fewer crowds and you can often secure discounts on accommodation.
