Climate and Weather

The Loire Valley is known for its mild climate. The air currents pushing in from the ocean hardly encounter any barriers, so their moderating influence can be felt far to the east. The Loire forms the boundary between two climatic regions.

In the summer, it separates the moist northern air from the warmer and drier southern one. After a short winter, spring usually arrives in March. May, June and autumn are the most pleasant periods. July and August can be very hot, with temperatures sometimes exceeding 30° C.
