There are several unique things to do in Provence with kids, including seeing some of the most famous landmarks in France! Here are my eight favorite activities to do with kids to help you plan the best family vacation in the south of France.
We had the opportunity to join French chef Jacques Steiner in his home, which also happens to be a bed and breakfast, at Terres De Vignes. Most kids love cooking, and learning from a professional French chef? Well, that is a special experience.
When it's hot, the locals head over to picnic at the Tourlourenc river, a lovely, clean stream area where you can cool down and enjoy a picnic. Some folks just enjoy a walk and enjoy the scenery. Taking life slow like the French is a great thing to do in Provence with kids.
La Pétanque is a sport commonly played in the south of France. Traveling around, you often find locals (often older gentleman) playing in courtyards or public parks throughout the region. My kids love all sports, so teaching them something unique to Provence was a special experience.
An absolute must-do in Provence is to visit the town of Les Baux. This lovely village can only be visited by foot. A former stone quarry is now a museum of light and art as you take in a spectacular moving light show of art to the sound of music.
