With 300 days of sunshine a year the climate in Provence is perfect for active holidays. Away from the high mountains the summer season lasts that little bit longer and our main summer season runs from April to October.

April and October can often have cold mornings but once the sun is out it quickly warms up and can therefore be perfect for those wanting a lazy start to the day.

Of course, like any mountain region, we can get rain and it can be heavy at times so well worth bringing a waterproof just in case.
