Sorry if this is a crystal ball question.

I'm planning on travelling to the Beziers region for an early break, in either mid March or mid April. Am I likely to see much difference in terms of temperature, winds and mosquitos between the two period? Thanks for your thoughts.

We've had a cold winter down here and even though it's the Fete de Mimosas in Roquebrun tomorrow there aren't many mimosa trees in flower yet. I also heard recently that the sap is late rising in the vines this year(!?) So maybe it might be better to wait till April? What do others think?

Personally I think april and may are the two best months down here.
Sometimes march can be warm, but sometimes it can be downright bloody nippy too. :D

Hopefully not as wet as the Dordogne, though!

It is so hard to predict. The problem with May is that it can be a very rainy month, like October. You really cannot say whether the average temperature is likely to be 10 or 20 degrees, either in April or May. Night temperatures might make a difference, though.

Well, MOH and I have always thought late May early June where best times, but will be there in March and May as usual, anyway. I confess early Jan was a bit cold this year and I had a leaking hot water pipe!

Whatever the weather it is a great place to be!
