Valensole

The famous « Plateau de Valensole » is one of our favorite places to go to admire the lavender in blooming season !
With more or less 800 km2, this plateau is one of the largest areas of France destinated to the cultivation of lavender.
Romans perfumed their baths and their clothes and also put lavender sachets of lavender in their closets. Established in France by the Phoenicians, lavender was essentially planted  in Provence because of  its climate : more or less 300 sunny days a year ! The fields of lavander are planted as far as the eyes can see and the blooming period is just breathtaking !
It is a place you can not miss during your journey to Provence !
Have a stop at the village of Valensole and taste the lavender honey, lavender ice cream or find some souvenirs based on the lavender essential oil known for its medicinal vertues
Several excursions include Valensole from Avignon, Aix en Provence and Marseille ! To have more information click here
