Heritage, culture, history & traditions



Sainte-Maxime, like all villages in Provence, cultivates throughout the year, its traditions and festivals of the good old days that were often tied to seasonal cycles and fields works (television, naturally, didn't exist neither did the internet).

Also, these holidays were the occasion for the village to gather, to feast and to forget the daily hassles.

What could appear today as folklore is really lived and felt by the native Provençal and it is with emotion that they perpetuate these traditions and popular festivals.
