Weather & Seasons
Provence enjoys a pleasant, Mediterranean climate. On average, Provence gets 300 days of sunshine each year, with warm but mild temperatures. Summer is high season here, with August bringing the hottest weather with highs of around 28°C. Spring is a great time of year, the weather is warm (swaying between 16°C and 20°C) and the crowds are small. If you want to see lavender fields then it would be best to visit the region in June. In October the weather starts to cool.
