Lavender

bouquetlavande

Among the 3.5 ha of farm land, 2.5 ha (the part between the farmhouse and the village) are devoted to lavender.
Each year in July, the field takes a nice blue tint. In August, the harvest of the flowers takes place; they are distilled to extract the essential oil of lavender, whose virtues are well-known of aromatherapists and perfumers.
It smells good!
