You will spend the day in the heart of the lavender’s fields of Provence in the region of Sault.
There is three different types of lavender.
The fine lavender can be found growing wild or cultivated on the dry Mid-August, Honey and lavender day hills between 600 and 1 500 metres. It gives a refined essence which is much appreciated for its aromatic qualities.
The Aspic grows wild up to 600 - 800 metres altitude. Its essence is very camphorated and is used in paints and varnishes.
The lavandin is a hybrid crossing true the fine lavender and the aspic lavender and does not reproduce naturally. Lavandin is very resistant and grown for its profligate harvest.
