Plateau de Valensole

Plateau de Valensole

Provence

France

lavender fields

 

The Valensole Plateau is situated at an altitude of 500 mtrs in the south of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and covers an area of 800 km² with lavender fields, wheat fields and charming villages.

The best time to visit the Plateau is july, when it is awash with beautiful blue lavender in bloom.When I took this pic the lavender was just colouring but not yet full in bloom.
