Stella en Provence

Stella, our apartment in Provence is not booked between November 2015 and April 2016.  These are the low season months and although it's not hot outside, it can be warm,  in the +10 degrees.  In fact, in January this year, Cotignacéens were eating at the outside tables on the square!

There are several advantages to renting at this time of year:

  1. Flying is less expensive
  2. There are less tourists
  3. Normally pleasant sweater weather, great for car travel
  4. Get away from the cold North American winters
  5. The pace is slower, more relaxed
  6. And, rents are cheaper!
Anyone booking two or more weeks can get a discount!  At these times of year,  the rent varies between 650 and 700$/week but for anyone wanting say, a month could pay considerably less than the weekly rate...

Go over and have a look... you may decide that spending a month in Cotignac is just what the doctor ordered.

We are leaving soon, and will be there till the end of October.

I really love wintertime in Provence. It's exactly how you described it - mostly fine weather, sunny, but not hot (nights can be cold), calm and very relaxing.
Will you be there in mid-september?
Bisous from Germany, Monika
