Lavender is a big deal in Provence. In fact, lavender has even been described as the “soul” of Provence. There are multiple lavender fields that you can visit in this part of France, each one more breathtaking than the next.
Actually witnessing the blooming bright fields for your own eyes is shocking to say the least. As you take in the unmatched sights you will also be able to smell the lovely hue of lavender all throughout the air. Not only are the smells powerful, evoking strong and peaceful memories, but the natural beauty remains untouched and surreal.
Just near Mont-Ventoux, these lavender fields are like nothing you have ever seen before. The highest concentrations of lavender fields are located on the high plateaux around Sault and Apt and Gordes.
Late June through September is the best season for lavender in Provence, depending on the area, the seasonal weather and the field that you are going to visit.
