Fodor's Review

As one of the most important distilleries in the region, this heavenly domain, planted by Maurice Fra at an altitude of 1,100 meters, produces primarily lavender, but also delves into the realms of other aromatic plants. The picture-perfect stone building rises up like a lighthouse surrounded by waves of color; aside from admiring the views, you can tour the distillery about how to cultivate lavender and take your time to browse among the all-natural products that line the shelves of the shop. The distillery is in the minuscule village of Lagarde d'Apt, 12 kilometers (7 miles) east from Apt on the D209; follow signs on the D34.
