Organic lavender farms


Several activities can enhance your tour. For example, a guided visit of a traditional distillery. It presents to all visitors the whole transformation process from the plant to the perfume and essential oil production. Such a visit coupled with a practical wokshop to learn how to make your own perfume is generally very much appreciated.

The plant is used not only for beauty or household products, but also for medicinal purposes. Thereby its soothing, antiseptic and relaxing virtues are widely recognized. For centuries, it has been cultivated around the World. Nowadays, Southern regions in France are the ones keeping the production running high.
