The last photos of Lavender fields in flower for 2012, the harvest is well under way now... but soon our new lavender travel experience for summer of 2013 will be unveiled "en avant première" on the Unique Provence Blog.
These photos were all taken on the Plateau d'Albion near the towns of Revest du Bion and Sault*. It is here that the valuable "Lavande Fine" grows, used by the cosmetic industry and notably L'Occitane en Provence a Unique Provence exclusive partner.
Note the Mont Ventoux** often making an appearance in the background, adding a note of majesty to the already spectacular views.
