When should one travel in France?

The four seasons are well demarcated in France. The best season for a motorcycle trip in France is between April and October, when the temperatures are mild enough for one to ride a motorcycle on the roads in France. The climate may vary according to the regions and the altitude. But, in any case, it is better to avoid winter months between December and March. The temperatures are low almost all over the territory. However, there are a few beautiful sunny days in the south of France and Corsica. Summer is an excellent period fro travelling in France. To avoid the peak tourist season, we suggest that you travel in the months of June or September. Spring and autumn are our favourite seasons for travelling in France, visiting the blooming countryside and admiring the changing colours. During this period, discover Auvergne, its green and preserved landscapes, its pastureland and pristine untouched valleys make you think of Mongolia. Be careful, in autumn, the days are short and the temperatures fall rapidly at the end of the day, even in the south of France. Whatever be the season, France is open to tourists looking for enchantment, authenticity and good restaurants.
