The color, the texture, and the fragrance of a lavender field summarize for many the essence of Provence. You can reach the beautiful lavender fields by car, by bike or on foot. The lavender blooms from around the last week of June to the start of August when it is harvested. It is commonly at its peak in early July, but this depends on the rainfall in the year. In July to August months you can enjoy the Sunflowers and Lavenders together. Other than visiting Lavender fields you can also visit lavender farms and distilleries, go to lavender festivals at Sault and Valreas, and purchase lavender products like oil, essences, perfumes, soap, etc.
