The sun finally showed up! As warm weather, meaning that the lavender season will be coming, one more time, faster than expected! As we all now, the blooming season of lavender, as short as it might be, is a big moment expected from all! The lavender fields of Valensole transform themself to a true stunning scenery to admire!

If you wish to be part of it, to be able to admire the lavender fields and discover all the secrets qualities of the lavender come join the Valensole Lavender Tour! Created with locals, the Valensole Lavender Tour provides the opportunity of a total immersion, the time of a haf-day, in the heart of lavender fields and all which comes with it!

The program:

  • Lavender fields of Valensole

Many stops among the lavender fields of Valensole where you will get incredible views and many opportunities to take the best pictures ever again and again!

  • Essential Oil of lavender

The lavender, which bloom only during few weeks doesn’t give us only beautiful landscapes, it is also a flower well known for it parfum but also for its medicinal properties!  Cultivated on the Valensole plateau, it is also there that the distillation is made. The past years, the lavender farming has become more and more mechanized however the distillery where I take you have managed to keep and preserved the traditional know-how. Owned by an old family, the traditionnal distillery is the only one left in Valensole who respect and perpetuate the know-how of their ancestors.

There you will witness the distillation process. At the opposit of new mechanical ways of distillation, the traditional process allows the producer to get a very high quality Essential Oil of lavender.

The distillation of lavender is an important moment, as the lavender only bloom once a year it is the result of a year work. As the distillation time is on a very short period I suggest to book the tour in advance!

Below, please find some memory pictures of the last year!
