Events and Festivals

We love the simple pleasures of Provence, but also enjoy taking in some of the fantastic events and festivals that take place across the region. From ‘Son et Lumiere’ shows, to Arts Festivals and local celebrations for local products – there is always something going on and here are some of our favourites:

Carrieres de Lumieres – incredible immersive light show in the ancient quarries at Les Baux featuring the work of well-known artists – 2019 (Van Gogh) 2020 (Salvador Dali) : Carrieres de Lumieres
