Blooming lavander, Provence
“Lavender is the soul of Provence”
The colour, the texture, and the scent of a lavender field encapsulate for many the
essence of Provence. There are different places around the Luberon you will find
concentrations of lavender fields: on the high plateaux around Sault, at the foot of
the Mont Ventoux, and around Apt and Gordes.
Provence’s most beautiful season takes place between June and August. This time of
year is when the famous Provencal lavender fields are in full bloom! If you are
planning a visit to the south of France, then bear these months in mind as the beauty
of the lavender will turn your Provence holiday into a perfect summer wine escape!
