Ashley TinkerLifestyle: Art & CultureWhat's On Provence & Cote d'Azur

February Events in Provence 2018

Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

Mimosa and Sea Urchins

Despite it being February, the coast of France bordering on the Mediterranean becomes bright yellow during this time of year.

Synonymous with the Mediterranean, I’ll never forget when I was in Italy during International Women’s Day. It’s the custom there to hand out Mimosa to every woman you see in the streets. I had quite the bouquet by the time I got back to my apartment!

Otherwise, this is also the month of sea urchins (oursins).

A lot of the action in Provence is on the coast in February.

…Continue reading here for Ashley’s list of  current events for the month of February in Provence. It might be a short month, but there is lots going on. What’s on this month includes a Salon de la Patisserie this weekend (February 3rd and 4th) in Marseille dedicated to those with a sweet tooth!

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.
