Fragrant lavender fields...

... bloom from June to August in the Luberon, around the Mont-Ventoux, in the region of Sault and that of Valréas; such amazing scenery and atmosphere make the lavender fields one of the summer Must-Sees in Provence.

This blue gold has been used for a long time to make soap and cosmetics; it is also part of the Provençal cuisine and lavender honey and lavender sorbets are worth a taste!
Follow the lavender roads in Provence from the field to the distillery, attend festivals dedicated to the legendary plant and make a stop at the Lavender Museum in Coustellet.
