FEBRUARY IN PROVENCE – What does February have to offer?
Firstly, the weather! Oh yes, come February the birds can be confused, the trees are bursting with premature blossom, the sun is rising sooner are the light is always dancing lyrical.
If you come to Provence in February you are in for a treat. Firstly, you can get some incredible deals on accommodation as February is officially “low season”. The pool is closed, the summer furniture is stacked away, the garden is still. But the light is bright and there is a general optimistic feeling that Spring is just around the corner.
Spring generally comes early in Provence. 17-19 degrees, enough warmth to eat al fresco at lunchtime. Warm enough in the middle of the day to get out on your bicycle and feel free again. Enough hussle and bussle of activity in the local towns and markets as people are getting ready for the new holiday season.
For outdoor sports like cycling, hiking, mountain biking and climbing, or wine tours, February is a dream time. You have to pinch yourself that it’s February at all!
