In Provence, we're already savoring the flavors of autumn!
Back to school in the colors of Indian summer
Admittedly, the villages have regained some of their tranquility, even if the café terraces are still bustling with activity. Late summer and early autumn are ideal times to visit the Vaucluse. The days may not be as long, but they're still very sunny, temperatures are milder and the first autumn colors revive the hitherto sun-drenched landscapes. While much of France has donned the gray clothes of back-to-school, in Provence we're lucky enough to keep our summer wardrobe on until the first frosts of November. It would be a shame not to make the most of it!
Hm, the flavours of autumn!
A not-to-be-missed autumn event in the Vaucluse region, the Ventoux Saveurs festival, organized by the Mont-Ventoux regional natural park, kicks off on September 9 and runs until October 29. Its slogan: "Sentier, goûter, vivre l'automne autour du Ventoux" ("Trails, tastes, autumn around the Ventoux"). On the program for this 16th edition are more than 80 events in the towns and villages around the Giant of Provence: farmers' markets and local festivals, shows and concerts, tasting tours, culinary workshops, competitions, walking and cycling tours, picnics and discovery dinners, and more. There's something for everyone! It's an opportunity to meet the men and women who work to make the Ventoux a gourmet destination, to sample generous local produce and, why not, to stock up on food as winter approaches.
