France has the benefit of a temperate, rather agreeable climate. Three types of climates may be found within France: oceanic, continental, and Mediterranean. The oceanic climate, in the western parts of the country, is one of small temperature range, ample rainfall, cool summers, and cool but seldom very cold winters. The continental type of climate, found over much of eastern and central France is characterized by warmer summers and colder winters than areas farther west; rainfall is ample, and winters tend to be snowy, especially in the higher areas. The Mediterranean climate, widespread throughout the south of France (except in the mountainous southwest), is one of cool winters, hot summers, and limited rainfall. The average temperature is about 53° F in Paris and 59° F in Nice. In central and southern France, annual rainfall is light to moderate, ranging from about 27 inches in Paris to 39 inches in Bordeaux. Rainfall is heavy in Brittany, the northern coastal areas, and the mountainous areas, where it reaches more than 44 in.
