We will be flying into Marseille on Friday 19th July , leaving Mon 22nd . Our sole purpose of going is to see Sunflower fields (30th birthday pressie from hubby!) , can anyone recommend the best place to go? Would also like to see lavender fields as well if possible. A bit of a last minute trip and have never been to France before so any recommendations of where to stay , what else to do etc would be greatly appreciated ?

1. Re: Sunflowers!!

You may organize a trip to Valensole. It's a nice village with sunflower and lavender fields. It can be a very nice daytrip. It is something like 1h30 away from Marseille. You have to take A51 motorway (to Aix en Provence and then to Manosque)
