Sum­mer in Provence is syn­ony­mous with laven­der and the depart­ment of Alpes-de-HauteProvence is home to more than 10,000 hectares of the dis­tinc­tive sweet-smelling flower. Dot­ted among the laven­der fields and farms are de­light­ful his­toric vil­lages such as En­trevennes ( pic­tured), a beau­ti­fully re­stored vil­lage which sur­veys the Provençal land­scape from its rocky promon­tory. The nearby town of Sault cel­e­brates the blue and pur­ple flower ev­ery year dur­ing its Fête de la La­vande, which this year takes place on 15 Au­gust.
