In general terms, the Languedoc climate consists of hot dry summers, rainy winters and moderate springs and autumns with around 300 days of sunshine a year.
Due to the size of the Languedoc the weather can vary considerably within its borders.
On the coast where sheltered by mountains, it tends to be sunnier and warmer than the inland areas. The mountains of course tend to be cooler, and valleys damper.
In winter the coastal plains of the Languedoc rarely freeze due to the influence of the Mediterranean sea. Summer temperatures are frequently 30° C (80° F) , with the inland temperatures a few degrees cooler in winter, and a few degrees warmer in summer. On the Languedoc plains the rainfall is about 71mm (28 inches) a year. Summer rain in Montazels is infrequent and the days are long and dry with short heavy rains occurring in autumn and spring.
