Weather Information

Tuscany Villa Holiday>Weather Information

One of the big attractions of Tuscany is its great holiday climate. Weather information is particularly helpful when deciding exactly when to visit this most popular part of Italy. Try our link to an  Aulla 5 day Weather Forecast

Generalised Tuscany and Lunigiana weather information is provided in the paragraphs below and there are links to weather statistics and weather forecast sites at the bottom of this page.

Tuscany Climate

The climate in Tuscany is very mild with little difference between the various provinces. However, the coast and valleys are hotter in summer than the hilly areas. Usually summers in Tuscany are hot with little or no rain. Spring (April and May) and Autumn (October and November) are milder and rainier, but there are still plenty of dry, sunny days. Winter  still has some sunny days but is usually wetter and colder, especially at night. July and August are the hottest months. January is the coldest month.

Lunigiana Climate

The benefit of having the hills and mountains in Lunigiana is that in high summer it is a little cooler than the hot spots of Tuscany. Of course, in the valleys and at the coast there is little noticeable difference. However, the temperature at altitude in the mountains can be a few degrees cooler. This means that summer walks and climbs are more pleasant, and in the winter it provides the opportunity for skiing and other snow sports.

Although Villa Papvero is set amongst hills and mountains its modest altitude of 254 metres provides it with a Lunigiana  'valley' climate.

Choose your Season

Spring in Lunigiana can be one of the most satisfying seasons for a holiday. Average temperatures are warm and pleasant and the days are lengthening with up to 9 hours of daylight. Although it can also be one of the wettest seasons, by May rain is rare.

Summer in Lunigiana is normally hot and sunny with pleasant balmy evenings, perfect  for 'al fresco' wining and dining.

Like Spring, Autumn in Lunigiana can be a good time to visit, with warm average temperatures in both September and October.

Winter in Lunigiana rarely delivers really severe weather in the valleys, but in the mountains there is plenty of snow, and the opportunity to enjoy it at a number of local ski resorts. Here you can enjoy adventure in the snow covered white mountauns under clear, blue skies.
It is truly beautiful.
