Climate and Geography
We have a distinct micro-climate that stretches up to the Loire and is bordered by Poitiers (the A10 motorway) and Limoges (the A20 motorway). To the East you will be in the mountains, to the West you are on the coastal plain and the winters can be influenced quite strongly by the Atlantic. The area has rolling hills similar to the Cotswolds to the West around Poitiers, and ends with Lake District style rivers, hills and lakes to the East.
We do get seasons – this is Europe, after all. In short, expect around 6 months’ worth of a great English summer with temperatures about 5c higher than the South of England. Then two months each of Autumn, Winter and Spring, with winter days being cold but bright – we rarely do grey and grim!
