Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Lavender in Provence

Visitors to Provence will encounter lavender in various forms—including bundles of dried lavender in the markets and lavender oil used in the many bath and body products you can find in the shops throughout Provence. If you want to see lavender blooming in the fields, be sure to time your visit around peak lavender season. While the exact bloom is a bit hard to predict, lavender is usually blooming from late June through early August.
