Many Francophiles swear spring is the best season to see France but there are ample festivals and gastronomic temptations around which to plan a trip at any time of year.
In May, the film festival draws crowds of people and soaring prices - a time sightseers might look to avoid and for star-spotters not to miss.
Families and sun-worshippers descend on the coast during summer, baking themselves from June to early September. Many shops take their congé annuel (annual closure) in August.
Winter is relatively quiet - although there are some small slopes around Cannes, serious snow enthusiasts head further north to soar down the 'real' snow-covered mountains of the southern Alps.
