What’s On in Provence? March Events and Easter Weekend

Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

Spring is Upon us! Or, at least, it is here. I remember growing up in Montréal when you could smell the spring mud and ice thawing, there would always be one last snow generally right before my birthday on April 26th. Urgh. For all of you in colder climes, you’re almost there!

…Continue reading here for Ashley’s list of what’s going on in Provence in March and leading up to Easter. There is even a Carnaval in St Remy de Provence, don’t expect Rio de Janeiro or Venice, but certainly a festive event for this Alpilles village. The new show at Carrières de Lumières has started featuring Picasso and the Spanish Masters.

Spring is lovely in Provence, it can be cool, but typically sunny and the first buds start to appear on fruit trees and the grape vines display signs of green shoots.

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.
