The lavender roads
The Valensole plateau is a large plain that stretches from Valensole to Quinson, to Lake Sainte-Croix, to the Montdenier, to the post of Telle. It is grown mainly of lavender, in fact lavandin which is a hybrid plant, crossing true lavender and lavender aspic. But what gives even more charm to the Valensole plateau and makes it even more photogenic is the crops associated with lavender: almond, olive, truffle, sage, fennel, coriander, immortal, sunflower, rapeseed, wheat.
Unforgettable scenery throughout the year but undoubtedly the best period is the blooming of lavender in June-July, flowering poppies in May-June, flowering sunflowers in June to August, flowering almond trees in early spring, olive trees throughout the year.
