Prepare for anything, Sandy. Weather here has been poor this year. You will be right on the Atlantic coast.

It is really a lottery at that time of year. Can be lovely but no guarantees.

If you haven't already got it, the Meteo France website gives a fifteen day forecast https://meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-f...buch/33260

Alastair has boat in that area so can add to this.

As John says, it can be a bit of a random into October. Even the weather forecasts can be touch and go more than 24 hours out as things change quickly and storms can be quite localised.

I’m not far from there - Gastes - but I’m there for the lake more than the coast. I usually head back to the U.K. late September.

I hope you find some nice places - Arcachon can be absolutely heaving in the summer months - I don’t really know Bergerac.

For a good micro climate and seaside the Charente Maritime comes high on the list. Not the area you are looking at though. John

We have looked in the Charente area and we quite like La Rochelle and the islands my fear is the flooding we live with the thames at the bottom of the garden and get flooded every now and then but not thankfully in the house it is also great having the boat at the bottom of the garden who knows where we will end up Very Happy

Stopped on the il de re for a number of years and loved it just off La Rochelle and a cracking place to stay with some great places. Traveled a lot and the only place I would go back to

Was that the trip with 48 speeding tickets Rolling with laughter

On the weather, inland can be very cold in winter whereas some protection from the sea . Ditto in summer a wee hot inland and sea breezes perhaps. Need local knowledge Filters are in fact so good that in certain circumstances, when the ambient air is already polluted, a diesel car will tend to extract more particles from the air than it emits. Emissions Analytics worked with........etc etc

He who dies with the most toys wins...

Spain 

A lot has changed since December 2019, have you checked out the visa and buying requirements? Different regions can interpret 3rd world (country 😂) immigration requirements slightly differently at the moment so when you have settled on a house to buy or area find out how the local authorities are handling new comers from the UK. 👍

As others have said weather around there is very ‘UK’ just with a bit more extremes at either end of the scale. As you want to emigrate are you sure you want the touristy areas? These are nice when on holiday but can be come a bore when you just want to live… when you live in a country and not tided by work you potentially have a lot more options on where to make your home.

You will need wet and windy weather and warm weather clothing at this time of year for sure.

Good luck.
