ah yeah, did not think about that at all.

why have they included the UK on their sunshine chart ,the UK isn't in France - and they given UK the wrong readings for the south coast ? 1500 odd instead of 1900 odd . Cheeky garlic munchers

The map is interpolated from French values only. You guys are at least as self-centered as us I swear!

It's not really a bubble as one can only assume that it entends over the nearby ocean. It's coastal so sunnier than nearby inland areas to the east, with less summer convection, obviously sunnier than Brittany to its north, but also sunnier than the Basque country to the south and its mountain-induced cloudiness.
Thanks - I though the ocean was probably included. The country to the south is quite cloudy, for sure.

I have traveled to the south of France near the border with Spain and on the coast the landscape is quite arid, it reminds me of Castellon .. I did not expect so much precipitation (500-600mm) but probably the summer is very dry and that is why Vegetation, right?

I've also been surprised by the sunshine hours, wow, France is sunnier than I thought!
It's not exactly "his maps" so you're not stealing them from him. Go ahead.

Hi these maps are GREAT, my husband really is fixated on living in Brittany, keep telling him I am not sure I can deal with this much rain and gray. We explored all over a good deal of France, just about everywhere we went was incredible, but as I sit typing this, with the wind howling outside and it getting rather chilly inside (southern Brittney) I showed him just one of your maps. Am keeping the page up to show him in the morning.

Is there a map here that shows the regions and cities so you can compare and figure out where the areas are ? An overlay map would be fantastic so you could see just where it is you would like to be.

But my many thanks go to the people who created these wonderful maps, as much as I wanted to be on the coast, not sure I can handle the rainy weather, especially as we like rocky coasts and inlets and further south seems to have nice flat sandy beaches. Coming from Florida we do not want the heat in the south so are looking for something more temperate but as much as I like Brittany I think it is too gray for me. I heard there is a golden triangle south of us - and I am pretty sure I can see it on these maps!!
