It’s something I hear all the time. September in France is ‘incroyable’ ‘like nothing else’ ‘the time to go’ but before we moved to France I probably wouldn’t have believed it. September in my 33 years of memories is when summer is over, the leaves are already falling hard, it’s back to school and basically you’re counting down the days to Christmas.
But nope, not in France! We’ve spent the last three summers revelling in 28oc days, swimming until 10pm in the pool, lapping up the last bit of summer sun like it was disappearing the next day. But it didn’t go!
It’s usually around mid-October when it starts to feel like Autumn is on the way. We’re fully on the ‘September in France train’ and can’t shout loud enough about it.
Not only is the summer weather holding out a little longer there seems to be a hive of activity in South West France when September comes. By far the most exciting is the Circuit Des Remparts, which happens the third weekend in September and is planned for the 16th, 17th & 18th September 2022 this year.
The Circuit des Remparts annual classic weekend car race, sees classic cars hurtling around the ancient, twisting roads of pretty hill-top town of Angoulême, South West France. Which conveniently happens to be 30mins away from Manoir Beaulieu! Its exhilarating and beautiful and after 2 years of not happening 2022 is set to be extra incroyable!
Another great thing about September in France is you can enjoy all the beauty and serenity of the lakes and beaches – usually uninterrupted by anyone else. There is something truly magical about sitting on a beautiful beach with only a handful of other people walking past.
So if you’d like to visit in September, or better still during the Remparts, then get in touch today – we still have availability! But quick, we’re booking up fast.
Until next time,
Lauren & James
