Winter in Provence

You may ask, “Isn’t Provence sad and dull in winter?” I would answer, “Not at all.” I know Provence in all seasons and winter has gotten to be a favorite time to visit. First, there is usually bright sun, warm enough to sit at a sidewalk café or enjoy walks in the crisp air. Tourists and visitors are few. Life is normal. In winter the simple, rustic atmosphere of magical Provence… Read more about why our contributor Dorothy Garabedian thinks that winter is one of the best times to visit Provence.

Dorothy Garabedian

I am an ex-pat American, born in Rhode Island, raised in Fresno, California, and now retired from government service living in Germany, near Frankfurt. From an early age I wanted to travel, but not as a tourist on a short trip. I wanted to stay longer in places. My government job with foreign postings provided that opportunity and I traveled to many countries around the world for work as well as private travel. For many years I lived in Belgium (Brussels), France (Paris), Germany, Russia (Moscow) and Uruguay (Montevideo). Now that I am retired I am devoting time to writing on travel and culture which can be seen on my blog Detours and Diversions and on my website. My connection to Marseille and Provence is family. Traveling regularly to Marseille for over 40 years for vacations, holidays and special family events, it has become like a third home. I see Marseille going through a great transformative period primed to become a delightful Mediterranean destination city with a unique style and personality; not just a place to pass through briefly heading for other parts of Provence. I say, "Marseille is a fascinating place that holds many secrets waiting to be unearthed." Through some of my revelations and insights my aim is to inspire other travelers to jump in and excavate Marseille's many treasures.
