You will make people jealous if you post a picture of yourself in the middle of the lavender flowers.
Lavender is the star of the summer.
Here, we can't wait to take the country roads and find the most beautiful spots. Seeing the fields start to turn their lavender color is an ephemeral, exciting event. You don't want to miss it? Even better than the photo, imagine yourself in the middle of a massage in the middle of the lavender fields...does it make you dream? On our territory, it becomes reality.
Go on the roads of lavender
Lavender is considered as a cultural symbol of Provence thanks to its declensions of colors, scents but also and especially thanks to its properties. The history of lavender, from the old-fashioned "baïassières" to the meticulous cultivation of lavender today, gives rhythm to the seasons and to the life of the people of this country, while constituting a rich heritage that is still to be explored.
Thus, the tradition around the cultivation of this aromatic plant, which dates back more than a century, has evolved with human ingenuity and is combined today with high-level scientific research. The lavender tradition has forged exceptional landscapes, associated, depending on the area, with other crops: cereal production on the plateaus, wine production on the plains, olive or fruit production on the terraces. This diversity invites you to travel, along the lavender roads, around a perfume, a color, a light.
Aspic Lavender: Its large leaves and long flowering stems with several spikelets differentiate it from fine lavender.
Fine Lavender: True lavender is distinguished by its smaller clumps and its floral spike. Its essential oil, the most subtle, is sought after by perfumers and laboratories.
Lavandin : Resulting from the pollination of true lavender and aspic, this hybrid is presented in the form of a highly developed ball-shaped tuft.
