We’ve lived in south west France for just over 9 years, so we’re used to long, dry, hot summers. This year has been exceptional though. We had a long, cold, wet, spring and now summer shows no sign of slowing or cooling. Normally at the end of August you can smell autumn in the air and the evenings are cool enough for a cardigan… not this year!
We had thought that heading to the high slopes of Cantal would bring us some fresher cooler air but we were wrong. France Meteo has issued a Canicule warning… it’s going to be un-seasonably hot… so take precautions!
