What’s on? June Events in Provence 2018

Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

There are many events this month including the Fête de la Saint Eloi. Saint Eloi is the patron saint of metalworkers, blacksmiths, cart drivers and craftsmen of all kinds. He is a particularly favourite saint here in les Alpilles. The Fête is normally transferred to the end of June rather than the 1st of December which is the official day. Most towns in the Bouches du Rhône dedicate a day of celebration to this saint. Normally, it starts with the decoration of a local horse cart using olive branches, wildflowers, and hay. The cart is then paraded throughout the town often followed by and different types of bull running. Oh, and copious amounts of rosé.

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.
