Question of the Day

My partner and I are public school teachers, which limits our travel time to Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks, the third weeks in February and April and the summer. I have been told that Provence in summer is too crowded and too hot. Does it make sense to go in February or April? I am an artist and would want to see the art museums.
