The lavender fields in Provence were one of the main reasons for our visit in July. There’s a list of destinations I want to visit that I have saved on my laptop and most of them need planning around the seasons. Once I started researching the area, I soon noticed viewing the lavender fields in full bloom was mostly down to a bit of luck and keeping an eye on the weather! I’m not sure if it was our luck or watching the forecasts but the end of June worked out perfectly for us this year.
Lavender season is generally from mid June to early August. The harvest is dependent on the weather, if it’s a hot summer the flowers will loose their colour quicker, however I know friends who have seen beautiful lavender in Provence in early June or even September.
