Le Vallon, Ancienne route d'Aurel - Sault

At the beginning of the path of lavender, just tap into the history of a flower, all its wealth and scents… Thierry and Sylvie make you visiting their traditional distillery, built in 1947 on the family farm, works with a straw home Lavender for the production of steam which is used to extract the essential oils. The distillation of lavenders is made in former method after sun-curing. Free tours by appointment on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Discovered the various lavenders, the various scents. Direct selling essential oils of lavender and lavendin from our production. Throughout the year. Sault is ideally situated for the culture of lavenders, at high altitude with a dry and Mediterranean climate thus very hot the summer, (for the walkers plan water, hat and sun protection), but also a climate of mountain thus more freshly than the plain, (plan warm clothes in winter).

Ideally situated on the south hillside is of the Mont Ventoux for the cyclists.

Short but interesting
You get information how they get the oil out of the lavender. They speak French and English. It's interesting but only takes about 10 minutes. You get to see the distellery (they were not working in it at the time of our visit). Afterwards you can go to the shop and are able to buy oil or other products. It's also very beautiful to drive around the area.
