The lavender country
The history of lavender in the last century is a rich heritage which remains to be fully explored.
Les routes de la lavande (the lavender roads) organised by providers of tourism, agriculture and cultural offer on the product areas : lavender discovery. There are two routes : Drôme provençale, Vallée de la Drôme and Diois. These are not circular routes but rather a number of poles of attraction linked by roads for motorists or cyclists and foot paths lined by wild lavender.
Outstanding landscapes open up in a succession of stages ; lavender is ever-present, varying in intensity from area to area : allied with cereal production on the plateaux, with vineyards in the plains and with olive and fruit trees on terraces.
This is an invitation to travel the lavender country, a common thread in the discovery of these landscapes which exude the same fragrance and light but remain richly diversified.
