October Tour in Provence
Sometimes people ask me what my favorite season is in Provence. I usually say spring as I love the wild flowers but when October comes around I am at awe with the ruby reds and golden yellows. An October tour in Provence provides stunning colors and a quieter, less busy touristy atmosphere.
October is also rich with festivals that seem to take a more authentic feel than those during the warmer months. Let me show you what an authentic small village festival looks like…
