Take this half day lavender tour in the morning or the afternoon from Aix en Provence to discover the Plateau de Valensole and its purple rivers of lavender fields.
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.
