What to expect?

Lavender tour in Valensole

Departure for the Plateau de Valensole, the largest and most famous lavender area of Provence. Many stops along the lavender road and free time among lavender and sunflower fields. Visit a traditional lavender distillery shop to discover lavender and lavandin essential oils, olive oil and lavender honey.

This is the time of the year when Provence puts on her purple and golden dress. June and July are the months of blooming for lavender and sunflowers fields. Lavendin and wild lavender grow at an altitude of 500-1700 m, in the sun and dry soil. It is a delight for your senses. Lavender is a treasure for the eyes, the nose and the palate. You can take a stroll among lavender plants, spot butterflies and bees, taste lavender ice cream, and buy lavender products. Valensole is a particularly popular destination for its large fields of lavender alternating with waves of shining sunflowers. Simply stunning. The best time to come to Provence for photos ops is late June to mid-July.

Moustiers Sainte Marie and Verdon Canyon

Drive through lavender fields to reach the hilltop medieval village of Moustiers Sainte Marie famous for its ceramics work. Free time for lunch. Drive to the lac of Sainte Croix du Verdon, and enjoy several photo stops on the way to enjoy panoramic views of the Verdon Canyon and Lake.

Occitane Museum

The last visit takes place in the famous Occitane Museum to learn everything about essential oils and natural cosmetics.
