Spend A lovely day at the Sault Lavender Festival

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

I do enjoy a good festival – whether it’s a big County Show in England or a small local food event in France such as The Honey Fair at Goult this year.

With that in mind, the signs for the Fete de la Lavande at Sault were too much to be ignored so yesterday Andy & I hopped on our bikes and headed off to see what it was all about.

…Continue reading here for Julie’s photos of their ride to Sault, passing by the Chateau in Javon. The Fête de la Lavande (Lavender Festival) is held every year in Sault on the August 15th holiday, for over 30 years. It is a day filled with the scent and colour of lavender. There are lavender-based products including local honeys. Books on lavender. A small distilling operation and a even “parade.”

Fete de Lavande website for details.

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
