Free time in Lavender fields . Blooming from mid June to July 15th
Pay attention, harvest time in Valensole is around July 20th.
From the beginning of blooming, enjoy the aroma and beauty of these gorgeous blue crops, real cast of amethyst.
A stop in Valensole is a very interesting little town built on the side of a hill overlooking a small river valley. It’s located at the northern edge of the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon, on the Valensole Plateau, famous for the lavender fields.
One photo stop at Lake of Sainte Croix.
On the way to Moustiers Saintes Marie, you will discover many lavender distilleries.
Moustiers-Ste-Marie sits below a narrow notch at the base of rocky cliffs. Above the village, the Notre-Dame de Beauvoir chapel sits high in the notch, behind the ruins of the ancient defensive walls, and hidden in the shadows for most of the day.
Moustiers-Ste-Marie is a lovely village, in a gorgeous setting.
The main theme of Moustiers is to sell the, admittedly beautiful, "faïence" ceramics (see also Faience Pottery), and the village is packed full of Faïenceries shops. There are very few normal shops, but there are some terrace cafés for relaxing and a fair number of restaurants.
Visit of Occitane is free of charge.
