Montpellier and its region offer
an excellent climate year round
Due to its situation in the Mediterranean, Montpellier
offers one of the best and sunniest climates of the whole of France - there are more than 300 days of sunshine per year! Montpellier and its region are attractive year round.
Spring is a very pleasant time of the year with lots of sunshine and flowers blossom everywhere. You can have lunch outside on one of the many terraces of the city or on the beaches nearby. People already sunbath and some people swim already early spring in the Mediterranean Sea.
Summer is very warm, but there is often a soft breeze which makes the stay pleasant (and the surfers happy). There are many festivals outdoors and even at night you sit outside in one of the numerous cafés - just in shorts and shirt. The Sea is very warm and everybody enjoys time on the beach.
Autumn is the continuation of summer, which lasts until October. The sea is still very warm and you can swim until the end of October. Evenings are still very mild and you can have dinner outdoors in one of the many restaurants with its terraces. This is also time of the wine harvest in the region which go along with many festivals in the neighbouring villages.
Winter offers a very mild climate. On sunny days you can have your lunch outside on one of the terraces or just enjoy a coffee on Place de la Comédie. The very rare colder days go along with a deep blue sky and a fantastic light. If you like skiing - the Cevennes mountains and Pyrenees are close by and have ski resorts.
