Provence tour itinerary (175 km)
Departure from Avignon.
LAVENDER MUSEUM OR LAVENDER FARM (during the harvest time)
Discover the peculiarities of the iconic flower of Provence at the Lavender Museum (introduction to lavender distillation, short movie, possibility of shopping in the cosmetics shop). During the harvest time (late July) this visit is replaced by a stop at a lavender farm, where you will have the chance to watch over the distillation process.
LAVENDER FIELDS AT SENANQUE ABBEY (exterior visit only)
Marvel at this jewel of the Romanesque art nestled in a lush greenery environment.
Admire the play of Southern light on the dry stone walls of this spectacular hill-top village.
Observe all the different shades of the ochre by wandering along the Ochre Path and the coloured roads of the village.
SAULT OR ITS REGION (according to the blooming stage of lavender)
From the plateau of Sault marvel at a unique panorama of lavender fields rolling on as far as the eye can see.
