, thinking of vacationing in France?

Come to Chez Castanet in the lovely village of Nézignan l'Évêque in the South of France.

Wondering when’s the best time of year to stay? Here is a small sample of what each season brings:

Spring
It’s not unusual for the French to bust out the bathing suits and catch the sun along the beaches of Marseillan & Sète. The water is still a bit chilly for swimming, but the Mediterranean sun is blissfully warm. Springtime in the southern French countryside brings temperatures that climb into the 60s, almond blossoms, and the distinctive scent of lavender and thyme.

Summer
Offers luxury, magnificent vineyards, and beautiful views. It stays light in France longer than you think it should. With plenty of outdoor activities, outdoor markets overflowing with fresh produce, and lots of beaches to work on your tan. Summer is a great time to be in the country.

Fall
As if France isn’t charming enough, seeing this country’s cities and villages blazing with autumn colors is simply breathtaking. Celebrate Beajolais Nouveau’s Release, one of France’s most momentous events. Each November, the world awaits the release of this young, light red wine. You can experience it here in France.

Winter
A great time to chow down baguettes, wine and hundreds of types of cheese while wearing your most fantastic sweater near a roaring fire; the cold Mistral winter winds are spoken of in hushed, superstitious tones by the locals.
