July in Provence

 Lavender fields on the Valensole Plateau July is Lavender-fields month in Provence, Fireworks on the Cote d'Azur, famous Piano Festival in La Roque-d'Antheron and summer festivals just about everywhere.

Some of our favorite lavender places to visit are Digne-les-Bains, Forcalquier, Gordes, Riez, Sault and Valensole.

Jazz solo on an Autumn Cannes International Fireworks Festival in Cannes starts Wednesday 9 July and finishes Sunday 24 August. This is a special year because the companies providing the fireworks are all previous winners of the vestale d’argent and the Judges Prizes over the last 3 years. 2014 is the year one of them will win the “Vestale d’Or” which is awarded only once every 4 years.

The 30th International Piano Festival runs from 18 July to 17 August in La Roque-d Anthéron, a lovely little village on the banks of the Durance, near the 12th-century Silvacane Abbey.
