Discover 3 Wet Places to Cool Down in Provence this Summer

It’s nearly 9 pm and it’s still around 30 degrees on the terrace this evening.

The weather over the last couple of weeks has been bizarre, ranging from the day I got in the car at Uzès to see the display reading 47degrees to a week ago when the temperature dropped to an unseasonable low of 20 degrees.

Continue reading here for Julie’s summer strategy on how to cool down in Provence when the mercury is hovering around 35C. Her answer is to find some cold water. Head to any one of the Mediterranean beaches (they went to Saintes Maries de la Mer in the Camargue). Take a walk in the Gorges du Toulourenc. Or, maybe best of all let your inner child out and head to the waterslide park.

Julie Whitmarsh

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
