Lavender
Passing through superb small villages surrounded by hills and plateaux lit up by the sunshine and where the scent of lavender is everywhere in the wind. It's really worth the discovery.

In summer, the area pays homage to lavender, the distilleries play open house, flower festivals are prepared and the big day arrives... Flower laden floats proudly cruise down the perfume laden streets of the village, craft producers exhibit their products, honey, essential oils, eau de toilette, soaps, dried flowers.

There is normally a craft fair, to tittilate you taste buds with goats' cheese, olive oil, local hams and wonderful fresh bread.

Lavender fields

Visit the "route de la lavande" at the best time, just before the harvest, from the beginning of July to the end of August... but be warned if summer has been particularly dry the harvest can be brought forward...
