One of the popular spring festivals in the South of France is the ‘Violet Festival’ Fête des Violettes.
Held in Tourrettes sur Loup, the 2013 festival will be held on the weekend of March 9th and 10th.
This popular event attracts people from throughout the French Riviera and Provence. With something for all the family it includes a colourful procession, plus a traditional market and live music.
On the Sunday afternoon there is a ‘flower battle’ bataille-de-fleurs through the streets of Tourrettes sur Loup. Admission is free.
Hiring a villa in the area.
If you want to make the Violet Festival part of a holiday, why not hire a Provence holiday villa for a week or two?
At Blackwood we have a selection of around 30 villas in the popular towns of Montauroux, Callian, Fayence, Mons and Seillans.
It’s a beautiful drive from the Fayence area to Tourrettes sur Loup. You’ll pass through Grasse, which is the perfume capital of Provence.
