Ideal summer conditions: between 25 and 30°C and sunshine. Ideal winter conditions: –5°C, lots of snow on the ground, but not snowing.

–20°C is too cold and +40°C too hot. I don't like it when it's hot and humid.

Is there actually that much French actually spoken there by the general populace?

Yes. Uh, I mean: Oui.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

I have 28.8° C in my flat right now, and I don't mind. I do however mind that my mother's garden is drying out because the heat is combined with a dry spell that has lasted for weeks now. The cure might be to go on holiday with a plan that included zoological gardens and long walks - then it would probably start to rain at my destination, though not necessarily at my mother's garden.

Perfect temperature depends on activity of course. 15-19° C is good for working or hiking, 20-22° C is perfect for sitting in the shade, reading. If there is a cooling wind blowing, 23 or 24° are okay too. Everything above 25° C is unbearable!
