August is a month in Provence where everyone believes it to be their right to do absolutely nothing (farniente) that requires any energy (other than catching up with friends, sunbathing by the pool or on the beach)
In September, there are plenty of festivals to attend and there’s a new crowd of tourists. The grape harvest has started and the tomatoes are so enormous and colourful you’ll think you’ve gone to tomato heaven. Ripe purple figs are falling off the trees, covering the sidewalks, and you’ll start seeing beautiful quince fruit at the market.
I think this is one of the best times of the year to visit Provence. The cool mornings are welcome after the scorching heat of the summer and the sunny evenings are perfect for long apéros in the garden.
I’ve included here a list of the events that I think offer the best of Provence, I hope you get to see some of them and if you do, let me know what you think!
