Is September the best kept secret in Provence?
Ahhhh… Provence in September… is there a better month to be had in this stunning region of Southern France? I am probably the tiniest bit biased but there are so many reasons why I look forward to this time of year.
Reliable sunshine is just one factor that makes Provence such a great destination. Even through the winter months you can be assured of lots of bright days where the sky is filled with nothing but blue as far as the eye can see. For heat lovers, things really get going from May onwards when temperatures climb to peak at 25C or warmer during July. As wonderful as this is, the temperatures (and weather in general) achieve a heady balance that is hard to beat in September. Strolling around markets, a gentle breeze playing through the air, with the temperature truly comfortable in the low 20’s is bliss.
I’m not the only one who must appreciate the climate at this time of year – with the grape harvest in full swing…
