Finding the Best Lavender Fields and Lakes in France

Updated: Sep 9, 2020

We started our travels through France with great ambitions of possibly making our way to Bordeaux and Paris, but alas, we fell in love with the beautiful Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes countryside and ended up spending almost an entire month in only these two regions. It's hard to imagine just how captivating the lavender fields and tranquil azure lakes can be.

We headed into France in search of lavender fields but never expected to be surrounded by rolling purple fields as well as the crystal-clear, blue lakes that we found around the Alpes-De-Haute-Provence region. The summer weather of July and August is just incredible and although the lake areas can get busy over weekends, particularly during the month of August, there are still many quieter spots around.
