Photographing the Lavender in Provence July 2015

Jump to last reply

Good morning Fodorites,

I am planning our 9 day trip to Provence the beginning of July to photograph the lavender next year and could use some help. I have Stu's amazing itinerary (thanks again Stu) and have the following:

Flights in and out of Marseille
8 nights staying at Les Terraces du Luberon in Bonnieux: http://www.lesterrassesduluberon.fr/index-english.htm

Our main plans are to stay in the Luberon and relax, eat lovely food & drink fabulous wine (for a change ha), and photograph the region. We spent a week in St Remy in 2006 and have been to Avignon, Les Baux etc...

These are the plans so far:

Saturday – London to Marseille

Fly into Marseille arriving at 10:30 from London and drive to Bonnieux – any recommendations for a lovely lunch along the way, preferably outside?

It looks like Maison Gouin in Coustellet is open 15:00 – 19:00 on Sat so we can go out and get stuff for a picnic dinner on Sunday and lunch on Monday. This place comes highly recommended…?

Dinner at Le Fournil in Bonnieux http://www.lefournil-bonnieux.com/

Sunday – Relaxing day – market in Coustellet, photograph a few villages

Lunch: le Castelas in Sivèrgues

Dinner: Picnic on our terrace (maybe drinks at Bastide)

Monday – Kayaking under Pont de Gard

Kayaking http://canoe-collias.com/en/Gard-Boat-Rental.html

Lunch: Picnic

Dinner: L’Arome in Bonnieux

Tuesday – Local area wine touring by Menerbes/Bonnieux (any great wineries to visit?)

Lunch at Le Sanglier Paresseux Caseneuve (by Apt)

Lourmarin evening market and dinner (pick up stuff for tomorrow) - is this a decent market??

Wednesday – Early morning photograph Sénanque Abbey, visit more villages

Lunch: La Ferme de la Huppe http://www.lafermedelahuppe.com/en/restaurant

Dinner: Bartavelle in Goult

Thursday – Cooking lessons at Jean-luc Rabanel in Arles (cant book until next June)

Rest of the day in Arles

Friday – Market day in Bonnieux, visit other villages

Lunch: Auberge des Carrieres in Les Taillades

Dinner: Stuff from the market (savory tartes from the Tarte Man)

Saturday - No real plans

Lunch: Le Pastorale in Cereste

Dinner: la Petite Cave in Saignon

Sunday – Marseille to London

I have also heard that Valensole is great for photographing the lavender and sunflowers - can anyone provide feedback on that - is it worth the trip?

Any tips, great photo ops, restaurants, wineries etc would be appreciated!!

Thank you!
