A Caliente Atmosphere
If you like the sun and heat, this is the place for you. In Provence, the sunshine is record-breaking: 300 days a year! In summer, blue sky is guaranteed and the climate is very dry: temperatures regularly break the 30-degree mark. Water temperature can reach 23 degrees in August and September. Rain is rare, particularly along the coast. But watch out for thunderstorms: they can be violent. In summer, the mistral, the dry, cold wind from the north and the centre of France, which arrives in Provence via the Rhône valley, brings some coolness to the big cities.
