It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Provence

Peak Season: July to August

During the peak season, the number of visitors to Provence increases exponentially. Parisians and foreigners head south for the warmth (temperatures average 75°F), and hotels and restaurants fill-up. Expect higher prices and crowds.

Off Season: November to March

Winter weather ranges from snow in the lower Alps to relative warmth (upper 40s) on the southern coast. Hotels, once closed over winter, now stay open and offer 15-20% discounts. Fewer crowds make sights more accessible.

Sweet Spot: April to June; September to October

These are the best months to visit. Prices are lower, 60-degree temperatures are pleasant, and the Parisian crowds are refreshingly absent. May offers blooming fields; September and October bring grape and olive harvests.
