Sunshine Lavender Farm Group
Our client, a lavender farmer in North Carolina has brought a group to Provence on two occasions now. Her requirement was for a trip which explored off the beaten path Provence with plenty of time for lavender experiences but also to have an understanding of how people live and work in this lovely part of southern France.
From their base in the Luberon area, over a 9 day period the group has visited two different lavender growing areas and enjoyed the best of the local markets and charming perched villages of the area. A visit to an olive oil mill with tastings, wine tasting lunches and dinner at a herb farm gave the group a real insight into the life of the area and the best of its produce. And a visit to a local market to choose their own ingredients for a cooking class with a local chef was one of the definite highlights of the trip.
The next trip is already in the planning stages and will include visits to local gardens, a goats cheese farm, guided visits to the charming old village of Eygalieres and the Van Gogh walking trail around St. Remy and of course the infamous cooking class.
