Average time to visit

Camargue enjoys a pleasant, Mediterranean climate. On average, this part of France gets 300 days of sunshine each year, with warm but mild temperatures. Summer is high season here, with August bringing the hottest weather and the biggest crowds. Spring is a great time of year, the weather is warm, with temperatures swaying between 16 and 20°C, and the crowds are small. If you want to see lavender fields then it would be best to visit the region in June. In October the weather starts to cool. Fall is also the start of the wettest weeks of the year. October sees an average of 3.7 inches of rain, with an average of three inches following in November. Still, it never gets all that chilly and snow is rare. In January, the mercury rarely dips beneath the -1°C.

Boat trips can be arranged on the Petit Rhone as it meanders south towards the sea, through the Camargue delta. The delta, famed for its salt is host to abundant wildlife including the flamingo.

For culture, venture into Arles, a stunning city with 2000 years of history. Dotted with Roman and Romanesque monuments the city is on the Unesco World Heritage List and the incredible Roman amphitheater still plays host to events. For art lovers, the Vincent Van Gogh Foundation is worth dropping by with a mix of temporary and permanent exhibitions.

With children, the amphitheater will surely enthrall in Arles, not to mention the swamp wildlife, pretty beaches and chance to canoe and horse-ride.

For those looking for charm and authenticity, look no further. Le Mas de Peint is beautiful. The owner Lucille the consummate hostess and the staff supremely helpful. Pair the beautiful hotel and welcome with activities aplenty and you have something off the beaten track but very special too.

    Gordes is arguably the prettiest village in the Luberon region and seems to cling on to the rock face overlooking the Vaucluse plateau. The village is a mass of winding lanes, terracotta rooftops and church towers.
