Due to the lavender season being early in 2015 a lot of the fields had already been harvested when we were there but our guide, Julien, took us to two fields which were still blooming and beautiful - one of which had a spectacular view of the village of Aurel as a backdrop.
We had a half hour stop in the village of Sault just long enough to buy some lavender based gifts at a better price than we would have found them in Avignon.
As we had not hired a car during our stay in Avignon, this tour gave us the opportunity to see some of the countryside and mountains in the area.

Fantastic tour! Perfect size group for the tour. Emilie our tour guide picked us up from the Central train station, on time. She made sure we got the right car seat for our little one, though it meant delaying the trip a bit!!

Emilie is very knowledegeable! She answered every question with a smile.

First we went to the village of Rousillion. The village is very beautiful, all the colourful houses and the narrow streets are very photogenic. Next, Emilie took us to the beautiful lavender fields with full bloom. What a beautiful place that was. We had plenty of time to photograph.

Overall we had a great time, didn't want the trip to end.
