Every time someone says France, people think of the most iconic Eiffel tower. However, Paris is not the only city to visit. Gradually becoming popular, the lavender fields in France are one of its kind. It is absolutely amazing to see vast fields set around the Aix-en-Provence region of France spreading over 300 miles square miles & France being the most famous country for Lavender fields!
Best time to Visit is from June 3 rd week to mid-July, however, it may vary year to year. You can visit during the daytime when the sun is shining but it may get quite hot or try to catch a good sunset & also avoid the crowds. The best city to stay for making a visit would be Marseille as you can then enjoy other attractions too. However, the whole French Riviera is beautiful & we suggest at-least a week to be spent in the region covering neighboring cities of Nice, Menton, Cannes etc.
