Experience the Enchanting Beauty of Provence's Lavender Fields

Embark on a captivating journey through the picturesque landscapes of Provence, where the air is filled with the aromatic essence of lavender. Our tour takes you to the Plateau de Valensole, the largest and most renowned lavender area in Provence. Along the lavender road, indulge in numerous stops that allow you to immerse yourself in the beauty of lavender fields, offering a unique spectacle depending on the flowering season. 

Provence comes alive in a mesmerizing display of purple and golden hues during the months of June and July. It is a time when lavender and sunflowers bloom, casting a magical spell over the countryside. Lavandin and wild lavender thrive at altitudes ranging from 500 to 1700 meters, basking in the abundant sunlight and thriving on the dry soil. Prepare to indulge your senses as lavender delights your eyes, entices your nose, and even tantalizes your palate. 

Stroll amidst the lavender plants, marvel at the sight of butterflies and bees diligently pollinating the flowers, and treat yourself to the exquisite flavor of lavender ice cream. Take the opportunity to acquire lavender-infused products, a cherished souvenir of your experience. Valensole stands out as an especially beloved destination, known for its expansive lavender fields that intertwine with waves of vibrant sunflowers. Prepare to be spellbound by this breathtaking sight. For photography enthusiasts, the optimal time to visit Provence for the most stunning photo opportunities is from mid-June to mid-July (depending on the weather conditions of the year).

Unleash your wanderlust and join us on a memorable journey through Provence's lavender fields. Immerse yourself in nature's fragrant masterpiece, capturing unforgettable moments along the way. Book your adventure now and let the beauty of Provence unfold before your eyes.
