Lavender fields as in 一帘幽梦 yī lián yōu mèng

一帘幽梦 yī lián yōu mèng

I’m sure you all saw the episode with the beautiful lavender fields or sunflowers !

The opportunity to admire those amazing landscapes is coming closer and closer !
Beginning of June we will be able to join a tour for example to Valensole or the lavender fields of the Luberon thanks to different companies in Provence ! If you are lucky you will even have a Chinese speaking guide !

Three companies with their own minibuses and guides of Provence that I advise you to contact to discover the lavender and sunflower fields :

Provence Reservation in Avignon and Arles : contact@provence-reservation.com

Provence Tours in Marseille : provencetours@free.fr

Tylène Tours in Aix en Provence : contact@tylene-tours.com

All the secrets of the« blue gold » flower !

During one of my tours through the Provence I had the opportunity to visit the Lavender museum !

The video at the beginning teaches you all about the essential oil and it is possible to listen to it in Chinese !

The best is at the end with the boutique offering a wide range of products including fine lavender. They explain you all the benefits of those products and my personal favourite is the pure essential oil that can be used at so many different ways !

As the Lavender museum is not easily reachable by public transportation means, the best way to visit it, is to book a minibus excursion. Provence Reservation includes the entrance ticket for this museum in several tours, have a look at their website and make your choice !
