Lavender Fields, Provence, France

Imagine fields of bright purple and delicate mauve under a deep blue sky, take a deep breath and experience the true scent and colour of Provence.
The stunning sight of the Plateau de Sault or the Plateau de Valensole in mid July, the two main areas of lavender cultivation in our part of Provence, are reason enough alone to visit this beautiful part of France.

Lavender blooms from late June to August and is harvested from mid July to late August, the exact time being dependent on the region, the plants and the seasonal weather so if you want to be sure to catch the lavender in bloom you should plan your visit from mid June to mid July.
