DH does not like hot weather, but I really want to go somewhere where it will be pleasant to swim outdoors and we can at least wear t-shirts/shorts, etc., without it being too chilly. I'm thinking Brittany might be a good compromise. Does anyone know what kind of weather we can expect in July? Is it likely to be reliable? Thanks!
Ime Brittany can be as unreliable as English weather! You really don't know what you're gonna get. As a family we always holidayed in the vendee (just south of Loire and Nantes) as it has its own little micro climate!! Well, kind of! Lets just say the weather there is a damn sight better than Brittany without havin to travel all the way to south of France!
south brittany has better weather stats than north. yes it can rain there too, but it also does in vendee. people say that s vendee is nice, but its a long drive. we tried north vendee a few years back and its not nearly as nice as brittany in terms of countryside/beaches/towns. we thought it a bit soulless compared to brittany.
