The most amazing and beautiful lavender fields
Who has never dreamt about seeing Lavender in full bloom?
3-day, 2-night tour. Very nice charming B&B among the lavender fields in Apt area.
Only available mid-June to mid-July
Provence bursts with conviviality, warm atmosphere, exceptional weather and light, amazing colors and perfumes, rich art and history, typical "cafés" under old plate trees, olive trees, breathtaking views, excellent fine cuisine, olive oil, herbs and wine. . . and of course fantastic Lavender fields, a paradise for photography.
Being a photographer myself, we go on a photography safari as well. I took all the pictures you can see on this page. And I know some fields where we almost never meet any tourists.
Can you already imagine yourself there?
Lavender in Provence starts to bloom around mid June and offers unique spectacular scenery especially during the first two weeks in July. Sunflowers and poppies in full bloom too, an amazing mix of colors and perfumes everywhere.
