What to Pack for Provence, France

Wandering through lavender fields

If you’re lucky enough to visit Provence between June and August then you’ll be able to enjoy the fragrant and colorful lavender fields. A popular location to view the blooms is at the spectacular L’Abbey de Senanque where monks grow their own lavender. Don’t forget your camera and a sun hat as you explore the lavender under the South of France sunshine.

A Day at the Markets and a Picnic Lunch

Whether you’re searching for antiques, shopping for souvenirs to bring home to family and friends, or just picking up provisions for a picnic—experiencing the markets of Provence is a must. Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes and bring a spacious tote to take home your finds.

Exploring Hillside Villages and Tasting Wine

I’m convinced that every village in France is unique and full of character. It’s no surprise the dramatic cliffs, cobble-stoned streets, and stone villas have inspired artists for many, many years! Get yourself a map and spend a day searching for your favorite village and winery.

Dinner and Drinks in Town

Whether your dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant or the local cafe, you’re sure to have an unforgettable meal during your stay in Provence. A few not to miss foods to try in Provence include Bouillabaisse (the signature dish of Marseilles), tapenade during your aperitif hour, and all the fromage and rosé your heart desires! A cute dress and stylish sandals are perfect for an al fresco dinner.

  1. Taste of France

    I’d pack one pair of shorts at the most. A short skirt is better than shorts. Women don’t really wear shorts here. Maybe young girls–teens max. It isn’t about showing leg, either, because skirts can be quite short.
