It’s the essence of Provence—intoxicating, calming, soothing, stunning—the purple elixir of Provence. Yet, it’s here for just a short time—at its peak in July but still stunning at the end of June. Provence is raw, rugged, and enchanting all year, but how can one resist being there when the purple elixir makes its show?
Provence in June.
Now to see the patchwork at the Plateau d’Albion or the Plateau de Valensole at its peak, a visit in July would be best. But in late June, there will be gorgeous lavender below Bonnieux and Lacoste, around Saignon, near Simiane-la-Rotonde and Banon, as well as many hidden fields down country roads all around the Luberon.
