Holidays in Provence

In this series of articles we are going to present to you everything you should not miss during your holidays in Provence.

Nicknamed "blue gold", it is aptly named because it is not easily cultivated and its flowering is short (between June and July). Visit the Valensole plateau and Sénanque abbey to learn more about lavender and visit one of the artisanal distilleries.

You will discover the history of the picturesque and authentic villages and you can stroll in the pretty streets of Gordes and Roussillon. Among these beautiful villages are "Les Plus Beaux Villages de France", such as Lourmarin.
