  A   Great   Love
lavande


First of all I wuold like to introduce Giacomo, the organizer of each journey, the one that increased my passion for everything you'll find in this blog and my life partner!

The first trip I propose is a constant step of july (as it's during this time that the lavander reaches the best and around the second or third weekend is picked).
We are in the south of France, Cote d'Azure and Provence, more precisely in the department of Vaucluse.
Enchanted place where you will be overwhelmed by nature, increduble colours and intense mediterrenean flavours.
Here you can admire the infinite blankets of lavander and sunflowers. A view that will suddenly surprise you during your car trip. The first time is something unforgettable.

We usually stay in Gordes, an ancient village perched on an hill and considered one of the most beautiful in France.
The hotel where we spend the night is called "Hostellerie Le Phébus", ex farmhouse not far from the village centre and 10 km from the forest of Saint-Lambert and Venasque.

Nearby you have to visit Roussillon which  is noted for its large ochre deposits found in the clay surrounding it. Ochres are pigments ranging from yellow and orange to red. One of the former ochre quarries can be visited via the 'Sentier des Ocres' (Ochre Path), a walk of either 30 or 60 minutes through the old workings.

Another must-stop is the Abbey Sénaque, built in the XII century and still inhabited by monks, is located in the middle of a vast lilac field!
The tour ends in Valensole when on Sunday there is the lavander festival. This step is strongly not recommended as it is too popular and therefore touristy.


Unfortunately this year we changed our journey due to the terrible floods of last year has deeply damaged the landscape.
So we stayed in Cote d'Azure in the beautiful Relais called "Le Mas Candille". From here, after one hour and half drive, we reached the Canyon du Verdon. This is the perfect place to spend one or more days into the wilde.
Suitable for those who want to scale the imposing walls of rock, try jumping from high bridges or rafting...but also for those, like me,who believe that swim in the warm green water flowing through spectacular gorges of rock is already something unique!
