Being that I was there in December, I did not get to see the Lavender. However, I did see their fields which extends from your eyes to the Horizon all over. And better then seeing the Lavender, I taste it with their pure Honey and...More
This is an unforgettable sight even in the middle of July. In order not to repeat, I will give practical advice on the route by car. We chose Villes-sur-Auson - Monieux - Sault - Saint Christol - Rustrel - Saint Saturnin les Apt - Villars....More
We went to photograph the lavender fields in Sault and on the Valensole plateau. We found the fields in Valensole to be much nicer -- more full, better color and cleaner (not a bunch of weeks sticking out and ruining your shot.)
Our journey began from Avignon where we rented a car and drove to Sault making 2 stops to visit Gordes Town Viewpoint and Senanque Abby. I heard that a bus ride to Sault would take 6 hours. Sault is only a little more than an...More
We visited the lavender fields around Sault in mid July. Truly an awesome experience to remember. The fragrance of lavender was all around the Sault region. The fields were a magical experience.
Better to visit during early hours in the morning or about 2 hours...More
One of the most popular destinations for viewing lavender fields. Simply gorgeous. Roads are winding, so be prepared. Breathtaking views. Certainly not to be missed if lavender fields in full bloom are on your bucket list. Late June is prime viewing time. But we visited...More
A tick off my travel bucket list - I've always wanted to visit the lavender fields of Provence. And Sault is the capital of the Lavender fields which grow on higher grounds.
The lavender fields are beautiful to see and the smell hits your nose...More
This has always been on my bucket list, to see the lavender fields of Provence in full bloom!!! It is a trek, but well worth it, and try to make pit stops at local bakeries and farms, to really experience the back roads. We were...More

At this time, the end of May, I recommend to visit GORDES and around the characteristics tiny villages around like LOURMARIN, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Roussillon… It is too early in the season to go until Sault, which is at a higher level as it is still winter time (trees without leaves).
The road to go there from Aix is in the order : Puyricard, Cadenet (without interest), Rognes (without interest), LOURMARIN. Between Rognes and Cadenet there is a splendid old monastery “Silvacane, near the river cold “la Durance”. It is one of the three little sister like “Sénanque” at GORDES. And from Lourmarin take the ancient road which go to “Apt” and “Bonnieux”
From Aix to Gordes : without stop, it is around 1 hour max. And from GORDES are not far of AVIGNON (less than 1 hour) and Villeneuve les Avignon, thru the “fontaine de Vaucluse” where the poete Pétrarque wrote some sentences to Laure !
It is a nice schedule to visit this area in the south of France.
