During July, people fly to Provence in France to capture the picture-perfect view of the city that matches the lovely sunny weather. But aside from French summers, there’s another reason why tourists are fleeing to the country of luxe and chic, the lavender fields of the Luberon region.

When June approaches, flowers bloom at its best to form purplish striking fields and aromatic scents which welcome tourists upon entering the area. However, harvesting happens between mid-July and late August so you should probably go now and see the full crop before the chop.

Before heading down without a plan, list these lavender field canvasses for the ultimate picture-taking sessions: Check out Plateau de Sault, Senanque Abbey and at the base of Mont Ventoux.
