Villefranche swimming/water temperatrue in October

Hello all...my husband and I will be staying in Villefranche for a few days beginning October 9th. Does anyone know if the water will still be warm enough to swim in by that time?

Thank you.

The television news often likes to show Scandinavian tourists frolicking in the water of the Côte d'Azur out of season. Makes the locals snicker.

What water temperature do you desire?

Thanks.

We were on the Riviera in June and the water was cold to us then! Only the bravest swam.

Current conditions in Villefranche:

VILLEFRANCHE-SUR-MER. Ciel voilé 18C. Mini: 18C - Maxi: 21C Température de l'eau : 23C Indice UV :. Force du vent : 14 nuds ...

If the water is 23 on September 11th, I think it might be a tad cooler a month from now.

I find the water on the Riviera freezing in July. I can't even imagine swimming there in October.

It depends on what you're used to. If you're used to water in FL it will probably feel cold. If you're used to water in Maine it will definitely feel warm.
