The best time to visit Provence is when the tourist season is over, then you can enjoy and relax in the warm sun!.
Each season has its pros and cons. In January the tourists are in the Alps or Pyrenees , in February the mimosa and almonds bloom on the Cote d’Azur . In April and May you can sit outside at restaurants and swim, and within an hour’s drive you can ski at Auron or Isola 2000. By June, the Mistral ( gusty winds) is slowing down and the resorts begin to fill up, walking is safe in the highest mountains. July and August are definitely not the best months to visit, when everything is crowded and temperatures and prices soar and tempers fare!. I will say that it is also the season of great festivals in Avignon, Aix ,Juan les Pins and Nice. Once French school holidays end in early September, prices and crowds decrease with the temperature. In October the temperature is still mild inland and on the coast!.
