France has a diverse climate. It's surrounded on three sides by water of different temperatures, all creating unique weather.
The northwest of France, Brittany and Normandy, is damp and cool. The heart of France is warm in the summer but not stiffling. Summer along the Med is almost rain free. The mistral, a cold north wind, can descend from the alps and turn weather in the south nasty in a hurry.
High seasons in France are the Christmas season, February school break (for ski resorts) Easter and the whole month of August.
