Weather

During July the weather in South France is perhaps the best you will find anywhere else in Europe. The average temperature in South of France during July is 22°C (72°F) and there are on average around only 7 days a month when it rains.

Currency

The official currency in France is the euro (€). The coins come in denominations of 2€, 1€ and 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cents The notes or bills are differentiated by their size and colour and come in denominations of 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5 euros.

Virtually all ATMs in France take MasterCard and Visa, and most are linked to the Cirrus and Plus systems. American Express has ATMs in major cities. Note: Most French ATM keyboards have numbers only, so if your PIN contains letters, remember the number equivalents. Four- and five-digit PINs are acceptable in France.

Credit cards are accepted in a large number of shops, hotels, and restaurants. Shopkeepers often state a minimum charge.

Currency exchange can be made in most banks and post offices as well as in some large stores, train stations, airports and exchange offices near major tourist sites. Look for a sign indicating "Change". Remember that even though exchange rates are fixed, agent commissions vary: they must be clearly displayed.

Electric Outlets

In France there are two associated plug types, types C and E. Type C plugs have two round pins and type E plugs have two round pins and a hole for the socket’s male earthing pin. France operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.
 
A universal all-in-one travel adapter (can be purchased from retailers like Amazon) will allow you to plug in and charge most electronic devices. Most electronic devices have built-in converters. However, if you plan to use North American appliances like hair dryers, flat irons or curling irons you will need a converter.
