Climate

The climate of the Pays de la Loire region varies markedly from one side to the other, because of how it stretches inland from the coast.

The coast is subject to a strong oceanic influence, which results in modest differences in temperature, mild winters, sunny summers and strong winds. The hills of Vendée and Mayenne receive twice as much rain as Anjou, one of France’s driest regions.

While there are both recurring droughts and heat waves, particularly in inland areas, the Pays de la Loire region is also subject to periods of heavy rain, snow and cold.

Although the Bay of Biscay is known for its violent storms, the region nevertheless enjoys milder weather than neighbouring Brittany, being more sheltered and thus less windswept.

The maritime climate means that winters can be cold, drizzly and stormy, but it rarely rains all day long. Summer starts in early April and ends in late September/early October. In July and August, temperatures can often rise to 26–28°C.
