Lavender Field

You can have your lavender-infused ice cream and eat it too in Provence, France. That’s right, these folks took flowers and turned them into ice cream. And we’re starstruck, TBH. Softly undulating fields of purple are downright unreal for the senses here, and you’ll smell them just as strongly as you see ‘em. It’s all popping off in late June when the fields are in full bloom, so plan your decadent mauve travels accordingly.

Lavender season in Provence generally kicks on between mid June and mid July, and wow, you don’t want to miss it! This larger-than-life aromatherapeutic treat is delighting for all the senses — offering an unreal visual experience as well as a wonderful fragrance. Harvests begin from mid-July onward, so be sure to plan accordingly.
