The Weather

The climate in our part of France varies between quite wide extremes; pretty cold in winter to really very hot in summer (but almost always with a cooling breeze).

Here are the historic monthly averages for Carcassonne (40 kilometres away) from 1971 to 2000 (excluding the heat-wave of 2003 and the most recent “Global Warming” effects). If you think ± 2 or 3 degrees centigrade at any point of the graph, you’ll have a pretty reliable guide as to what to expect during your stay:
