A List of Things to Do in Winter in Provence
Contributor blog post by Victoria Koning @Mirabeau Wine:
Provence is synonymous with sunshine, lavender and rosé wine, and can get a little hectic in the summer months (July and August). So we’d like to share with you what we love about Provence the rest of the year, especially in winter!
Firstly, it’s much calmer people-wise. The climate can also be amazing with t-shirt weather during the day, and then enjoying a glass of rosé in front of a crackling fire in the evening. Situated inland, our village is normally colder than on the coast, with some vineyards even measuring -15°C in winter!

If you live in Provence, then the winter months are a perfect time to visit some of the charming villages like Eze, St Paul de Vence, Les Baux de Provence and Gordes that are crammed with tourists during high season. Alternatively, head to a museum for a chance to take in the latest exhibits at your own pace.
