Lavender July 2014

When is the best time to see the lavender in July? I will be there only at the end of July and I am worried that I will miss it.

The closest lavender to Nice is on the monk's island of St Honorat.

Other than that, you would need to travel to the Valensole Plateau or to the Vaucluse.

Valensole is over 3 hours away from Nice.

Avignon is IN the Vaucluse.

You can go to the Abbaye de Senanque near Gordes.

Or to Sault for larger displays.

Season varies with weather for Lavender but late July you'll probably have to go to higher altitude (1000 m) to find champs in "floraison"

Digne is the major centre - there is a big annual lavender festival here in early August.
