The climate in North Fort Myers is humid subtropical, which translates to winters rather like British summers, but with perhaps a little less rain and more sun. The long Florida summers, however, are a different beast, with temperatures topping out in the mid 30s Celsius. Though not quite as extreme as the tropics, that's plenty hot even for the most dedicated sun worshipper. There is some respite in the frequent thunderstorms, however, which contribute to the elevated rainfall one finds in the summer months.
North Fort Myers has its own Southwest Florida International Airport, which is tremendously convenient, but doesn't do much in the way of direct flights from Europe. Orlando and Miami are the go to airports for direct international flights, and neither are so far away to make the fly/drive unmanageable, at 200 miles for Orlando and 155 for Miami. Fly/drive is the most effective way to travel in Florida, because public transport is largely ignored. There are Amtrak and Greyhound stations in Fort Myers, however, if you're inclined to travel elsewhere by train or bus.
