Provence in Sept-Oct

Could someone tell me what the weather is usually like at the end of September, and is it a busy season for tourists? Thanks.

We regularly go to Provence (and the Drome) in mid September and still find it warm enough to swim out of doors in unheated pools although water at around 20C is a little bracing. Can't remember having any seriously discouraging weather at that time and frankly we prefer it on the warm rather than the hot side - there is a tendancy to fry in late July/early August. Also, because all the school holidays have come to an end, there are a lot fewer tourists about, it's easier to get around and parking spaces become at least a possibility. It's a good time to go.

Out of season, check for changes to opening hours - tourist attractions which are open all day during the peak holiday season may revert to closing for a couple of hours for lunch, which can be annoying if you're not prepared!

We went in mid-Oct and the weather in Provence was beautiful. mid 70's (F) during the day with cooler nights. As we got closer to Paris, it was cool, but not much more than a light sweater/hjacket was needed. I think it's a great time to go.

Hi fally,

last year the weather in September was fantastic and we hope it will be good this year. I would certainly advise booking Provence in September. We are already getting booked up at Les Carmes. I think a lot of people like to wait until the children have gone back to school before coming. September can be as busy for us as July & August, but the crowds are much less when you are driving around.

Have a great holiday!
