Provence in April 2015

Jump to last reply

One of my daughters has become obsessed with running marathons and she (along with several members of her running group) decided to try to get in to the Paris Marathon next April. They all received bib numbers and have been making the necessary arrangements. At a family gathering a while ago, it was decided a few of us needed to go along and cheer for her – hey any excuse to go to Paris right?? So we have an apartment booked for April 4th through the 14th and we are all very excited to go.

I guess that was a long story to say we are locked in to Paris for those dates but my wife and I are thinking about extending for a while after the kids leave on the 14th and are wondering what Provence is like in mid-April. We have never been to Provence and are thinking of taking the TGV to Avignon, renting a car to see a few of the towns and sites for a few days and flying back to ATL from Marseilles.

I know we will miss lavender season (June and July) but I would think it should be pretty in mid-April and I think many of the little towns would be nice to visit. Is there any reason this would not be a good time to visit Provence? Thanks for any thoughts you may have on this.
