Languedoc boasts over 300 days of sunshine annually and the blue sky proves an attraction to those renting a villa in the region. Summers are hot (Nimes is the hottest place in France recording a temperature of 43C in 2001) and from May to the end of September the average is late twenties to early thirties.
The garden and terrace at Villa La Cascade provides shade from the southern French sun as well as a beautiful deck upon which to stretch out and enjoy the views from this Langueedoc villa. Winter is brief, frost rare and even at Christmas you can feel the warmth of the sun - great for those thinking of a Languedoc long term let. In the mountains great skiing is found a few hours drive away in the Pyrenees ski resorts such as Les Angles.
Our favourite season is autumn. It’s warm enough to sit out and visitors renting our Languedoc holiday villa can use the pool until the end of October. The colours in the local vineyards are russets, reds and golds as the harvest gets into full swing. A few hours’ drive north from Durban Corbieres is the Montaigne Noir where the climate changes significantly. Into the hills you reach the watershed where rivers drain north and west to the Atlantic rather than south and east to the Mediterranean.
If you’re thinking of a Languedoc villa rental at Easter, Villa La Cascade is also beautiful in March or April with a mixture of sunshine and the odd shower. However the sun is never far behind and is guaranteed to put in an appearance sooner or later! Book Here
