A Scented Visit to La Ferme aux Lavandes in Sault

Contributor blog post by Cheryl Shufflebotham:

It’s lavender season in Provence! And what better way to enjoy it than to incorporate a visit to a lavender farm in the stunning fields around Sault, the capital of lavender.

For quite some time, I have been enjoying the beautiful posts of charming villages, lavender, and adorable rabbits and cats from la Ferme aux Lavandes. So last week on our way to explore the villages around Mont Ventoux, we decided to make a stop at the lavender farm.

…Continue reading here for Cheryl’s purple-hued photos and her description of their visit. Located just outside of the village of Sault, La Ferme aux Lavandes is on the road that leads riders and drivers to the summit of Mont Ventoux. The road can be busy as many visitors make a circuit of visiting the lavender fields in and around Sault, and visiting the peak of the “giant of Provence” in a day.

Lavander Festival in Sault

It’s the final celebration of the season, but not one without fanfare. The Sault lavender festival happens annually (rain or shine) on August 15th. The day includes lavender cutting demonstrations (the old fashioned way), a market, arts and crafts, horse and buggy rides and more. Details for this family-friendly festival are available on the tourism website here.

Although, Cheryl and her husband live in upstate New York, she tells us that she is always yearning, planning, maneuvering to make her way back to France.

Cheryl's love for France started almost eleven years ago with "a once in a lifetime" ten-year anniversary trip. These wannabe expats have been back every year since that trip!

Cheryl's first French love is the region of Burgundy, but then a few years ago, she discovered Provence. Now she admits that she is torn between Burgundy and Provence. It sounds like Provence has her spellbound, "I can’t quite put a finger on what it is about Provence, but its intoxication keeps luring me back for more."

Cheryl started her blog Cobblestone and Vineyards to explore the simple charms of France, those small details that capture the heart.
