A symbol of the region, The Valensole Plateau reveals vast wheat fields, almond groves and above all, lavender fields stretching away as far as the eye can see. At winter's end, new shoots of Provence's "blue gold" begin to appear, hinting at a wave of breath-taking colours when they reach full bloom. Between now and July, the countryside grows more and more beautiful, becoming the pride of its residents and making it a joy to take a walk through its fields.
