Loire or Provence in January?

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are visiting France for the first time this January, and we have 4 or 5 days in which we would like to visit a part of France other than Paris. I'm looking mostly at the Loire or Provence, but unsure which would be best for that time of year. We don't have a problem hiring a car (but a bonus if we don't have to), and we're from Canada so the cold weather is not a deciding factor. What are the chateaux like in winter? Would we be better off seeing the provencal towns in winter when the tourists have gone? I know both areas have some exceptional things to offer, but wondering what other people would recommend if they had to choose just one. Thanks!
