  • WEATHER 
    With its oceanic climate and 200 days of sunshine a year, the Périgord is very pleasant in all seasons. There can be great variations in temperature depending on exposure and terrain - hilly or flat, open or wooded. The Périgord is in fact a land of transition between the temperate oceanic climate of Aquitaine and the semi-mountainous climate of the Massif Central.
    - Spring is a rainy period but with mild temperatures. It offers beautiful days and the colours are magnificent with all shades of green.
    - Summer is often dry and hot, with temperatures averaging between 25 and 35 degrees Celsius, but with occasional thunderstorms to cool the atmosphere.
    - The first part of autumn from September to October is a very pleasant season. The weather is mild with beautiful orange and purple colours: a good season for mushrooms, chestnuts and walnuts.
    - In winter, it remains fairly mild with some cold spells, but mainly mild due to the nearby Atlantic influence. Frost is possible but it rarely snows.

  • ELECTRICITY
    . France is on a 220 Volt system
    . We recommend checking if you require an adaptor for your electrical items HERE 

  • MOBILE PHONE & INTERNET
    . Contact your operator before leaving and check if you will be able to use your mobile phone abroad. 
    . A good option is to buy a “country Sim card” in a phone shop. It will cost you around 10€ / 15€ and will allow you to call local phone numbers with internet access

  • MONEY MATTERS & CLOSING HOURS 
    . The currency is the €uro. Make sure to have some cash with you as there aren’t always ATM machines in small villages.
    . Tips are always included (different than in Canada and USA) but always appreciated.
