Why You Should Explore Breathtaking Provence this Fall

Provence in Autumn

Almost anyone with an artistic eye – photographers, painters, Instagrammers – love Provence for its beautiful light. Famous artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gaugin Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso all captured the ever-changing luminosity on their canvases. Provence is glorious in any season, however during fall the unique “painter’s light” is the most apparent. Brilliant autumn shades of red, yellow and purple flash through as the morning fog blanket lifts. Fall’s early evening light caresses old stones and mountain ridge tops with a soft pink hue.

Sample Fall Tour of Provence

Shorter days, fewer crowds and bright colours are just a few reasons that fall is the perfect time to take an intimate guided tour. Join Your Private Provence for a week of relaxed touring through Rhône Valley vineyards, charming villages and historical centres. Designed as a small-group tour, you will enjoy a selection of unhurried experiences while exploring this beautiful region. This trip takes advantage of glorious September weather when daytime highs are typically above 20C (70F). Often this month is punctuated by the annual grape harvest, the first olives (olives cassées) and freshly foraged mushrooms.

This Your Private Provence trip is a chance to relax in the South of France and relish in the experience. The tour’s two bilingual guides have plenty of local knowledge and have collectively spent well over 25 years in France. The itinerary offers a healthy balance of exploration and downtime, sampling the seasonal tastes of Provence and enough exercise to justify a glass or two of local wine.
