Best timing in autumn

Hi!

My DW and I plan to go to CT some time in the autumn, probably in September (late?) but we are fairly flexible. Which period would be ideal considering a good balance between :

- not too hot for hiking

- not too cool for refreshing swims (20 °C in the sea is verrrry ok)

Looking forward to valuable planning input.

Best regards

Kurt

The earlier you can go the better, for sea temperature and in particular for better chances of good weather. Unless you prefer hiking in rain to warm sunshine.

This year, though unusual in many ways in terms of weather, had an incredibly warm September that led to comfortable beach weather until October 10th or so.

Hi!

Thanks for input! This supports our initial thinking = end of September / beginning of October being ideal. We had a lovely stay in Antibes during the last week ofd September 2009, so this period should be ok .... according to statistics .... which never occur in real life -------
