Housed in an old Provençal stone house, the Lavender Museum is a must for all nature lovers interested in true fine lavender. The Lincelé Family initiated this fabulous project in 1991, inviting visitors to discover the true lavender of Provence, "fine lavender".
Every weekday from May to September, the museum runs creative activities relating to the sense of smell.
The visit takes you through a rich collection of lavender stills from the 16th century to the present time, and is commented in 11 foreign languages on the audio-guides, leaving visitors free to visit the museum in keeping with their interests.
See all the rooms, the collections, the projection room with documentaries filmed at the Chateau du Bois at the base of Mont-Ventoux, on planting, harvesting and the distillation of fine lavender from Haute Provence.
Count on an hour for the visit, to take full advantage of the fragrance and virtues of lavender.
Discover the shop where an exclusive line of natural cosmetics is sold. This high-quality 'Chateau du Bois' line features AOC essential oil of fine lavender.
To further share his passion, Jack Lincelé organises distillation of lavandin from 1 July to 25 August in an open-flame still from the1900's. An interesting and fun opportunity to see distillation, and meet other visitors, the distiller and the gardeners from the Luberon who bring their lavandin in for distilling.
