Actually France is organised in 13 regions and it has changed his organisation in 2014 down the number of regions from 23. The regions are detached in departments whose number is 96.

Weather in France is variated depending of the town where you live. It could be differenciate four kinds of weather : Atlantic on north and northwest, continental on west, mountain in the area of Alps and mediterranean on the south and southwest.

Generally live in Paris and arround it is very similar to live in London or Belgium or Holland. It rains a lot and it is three of four days cloudy. Difference with the south it is huge, with the south very similar to live in the north of Spain or Catalunya if you are in the coast (La Cote dAzure). In fact when I was in Toulouse i remember after May most of the days were good, at exception of some rainy week, and until half of September it not arrive to rain again. There were days of summer where hot sensation it was very similar to Spain June with some day with a temperature reach 35 degrees. Sometimes you feel like the north of Spain. Until it was October it not begin the cold sensation, so it was like 4 stations very differentiated in opposite of Spain where last years it seem like we have two.

Next map we see the difference between live in south and live in north is have double time of sun hours into a year, a difference that it could be something similar to compare interior areas of Vasc country with Andalucia south areas.
