Summer in Provence is a wonderful season. If you visit slightly early, in March and April, you might not get beach weather, but you will find the temperatures ideal for cultural sightseeing and exploring the region. From the end of June to August is when the lavender fields burst into deep blues and purples – definitely worth the putting up with the warmer weather. Besides, you might want to head south to the beaches on the Riviera while you’re in the area.
