On holiday in France.

France has been a popular holiday destination for campers for years. And that is not surprising. Few countries have such a wide variety of landscapes as France. Whether you are looking for a warm beach holiday, a cycling holiday in the Alps or winter sports. You can find it all in France. Most of France has a temperate maritime climate. Only the part along the Mediterranean Sea has a Mediterranean climate. In the highest parts of the Alps, one speaks of a high mountain climate. In France, one speaks of a four-season climate, which can all be clearly distinguished. The average annual precipitation is evenly distributed over the year, although the averages are slightly higher in the winter months.

The climate in France

France has three climates. The largest part of the country has a temperate maritime climate, with relatively mild winters, no extremely hot summers and precipitation all year round. The French Alps, located in the southeast of France, have a high mountain climate. Relatively high precipitation, colder winters and relatively cool summers characterise this climate. Along the south-eastern coast, which runs from the border with Spain to the border with Italy, there is a Mediterranean climate, with warm, dry summers and relatively mild winters. The eastern part of this coastal area, the Côte d'Azur, is the sunniest part of France. In order to indicate how sunny other areas are, the comparison with this very sunny region is usually made.
