The Lavender route
Drôme valley, Diois and Buëch
At the gates of the Vercors Regional Natural Park, you will go in search of lavender from the heights, often far from the cities and main roads. Along the Drôme river and the hilltop villages, passionate producers jealously guard rare varieties. Others imagine recipes to delight the taste buds or to offer modern aromatherapy.
From Drôme Provençale to Vaucluse
With Mont Ventoux in focus, the route takes cross roads between large expanses of lavender, in the heart of an exceptional terroir. From nougat from Montélimar to olive oil from Nyons, you will also have the opportunity to taste the wines of the Enclave des Papes (in moderation) or admire the famous Château de Grignan surrounded by lavender.
From Provençal Baronnies to Buëch
On the borders of 4 departments, the Baronnies are a mountain territory with a strong identity, marked by its lavender emblem.From Vaison-la-Romaine to Sisteron, lavender is everywhere, in all its forms, from the plant, skillfully cultivated on the hillsides, to the insulation of houses, including the "hulled" flower, bouquets and of course the essential oil ...
The lavender fields around the Domaine de la Tourmentine
Several routes to visit these lavender fields will be available to you in the cottage.
