Summertime in Provence is the perfect time of year to visit the infamous Provence lavender fields! Lavender primarily blooms late June through August. Sunflowers start blooming late July and can be found growing in the same fields with lavender until the end of August.
Provence Lavender originally came from the Old World and Canary Island and spread across the South of France and throughout Southern Europe. Today, people travel from all over the world to take photos of the bursting lavender fields. Some of the most picturesque places to spot these rolling purple pastures are in the heart of Provence in the Luberon Valley.
