From mid-June to mid-July, lavender blooms on the Valensole plateau for our greatest happiness. Fields on both sides of our journey….. a pure pleasure.
The Valensole Plateau:
Nicknamed the “granary of the region” with its 800 km2, the Valensole plateau is mainly devoted to the cultivation of lavender and cereals.
The Romans perfumed their bath and their clothes with lavender. Some even put it in sachets in their wardrobe while making love vows.
For lunch (free) a obvious stop in the pretty little Provençal village of Moustiers-Ste-Marie – famous for its earthenware.
The bravest will not fail to climb up to the magnificent N.D. de Beauvoir chapel to enjoy an exceptional panorama and get closer to the famous star linking the 2 rocks.
We will follow the lake of St. Croix. At the Galetas Bridge, the entrance to the Verdon gorges invites you to another discovery.
