The climate of Provence (France)
The Provence is situated in the south of France and has a subtropical climate. Spring comes early in the Provence and that, among other things, causes the delicious odors of the lavenderfields in May. The fields with lavender are sometimes so large that you can already smell them from afar. It is not without reason that this region has been a source of inspiration for many painters for centuries. In the summer the temperature can rise until about 30 degrees. In the winter the temperature seldom drops below zero. Typical for the Provence is the mistral. This cold wind can come on all of a sudden from the Central Massive and produces a rough breeze in the winter and delightful cooling in the summer.
