Brest has a mild, humid, temperate climate. This means that summers in the city are warm and there is no dry season. Annual temperatures vary from 4 to 21 degrees. The warm season lasts from June to September and is the most popular time to plan flights to Brest. The coldest time of the year is from November to March.
The off-peak season is the best time to take advantage of great deals on hotels and cheap flights to Brest. At the beginning of September the tourist season falls off sharply and it is during the cooler months in early September and March that you will find good weather and reasonable prices in the city. Special event weeks and weekends, school holidays and the festive season have the most expensive rates in France and it can also get crowded, so for a quieter, cheaper, holiday, try the beginning and the end of the off-season. If you don’t mind some cold weather and rain, then book a flight to Brest during January and enjoy warm fireplaces and exotic French wine and cuisine.
