The wonders of Provence


Lavender, renowned for its medicinal virtues, known for its repellent properties against certain insects, appreciated for its fresh and floral scent, both slightly camphoric and very aromatic, has been picked in the wild by the Provence people since time immemorial. 

Several species can be cultivated in the lavender fields of Provence.

The flowering period lasts from mid-June to mid-August, and is sensitive to climatic factors: earlier in warmer and sunnier regions, it can be later when approaching the alpine valleys. To admire the lavender fields in bloom in Provence, you can schedule an excursion between mid-June and mid-July.

The plateau de Valensole is certainly one of the most famous places. Located between the valley of the Durance and the Gorges du Verdon, the region hosts many fields, producers cultivating both lavandin and true lavender.
