Climate in South Britanny
Is it always rainy in Brittany?
Brittany has the (wrongful) reputation of being a wetland.
The current climate of Brittany is an oceanic climate with dry summers and mild but wet winters.
On the North coast, in the West and in the interior of Brittany the climate is a little more humid (dark blue on the map).
On the south coast, the climate is drier (light blue color).
The Gulf of Morbihan's micro-climate
The coast around the Gulf of Morbihan benefits from a micro-climate due to the warm ocean current, the Gulf Stream: being in the vicinity of the Atlantic Ocean allows constant mild temperatures and the Gulf Stream warms the sea.
The weather varies with the tides and is combined with a pleasant breeze that makes the hot periods more bearable.
Proof of this privileged climate, the remarkable local vegetation: mimosas, camellias, hydrangeas, lavender, palm trees ...
Winters are mild in Brittany with average temperatures between 6 and 8 degrees.
It rarely freezes during this period and it is in the interior of Brittany that gets the most rain.
The red dot on the map shows the location of Camping de La Plage: here it rains an average of 600 mm per year, which is equivalent to the amount of rain in Nice, in the south of France!
With storms coming from the north and south-west, winter is the least pleasant time to be in Brittany.
But it's a great experience to get some fresh air during a storm and see the waves breaking on the rocks!
