Gateway to the Lavender territory, Vaison la Romaine is better known for its Gallo-Roman ruins and its wines than for its lavender ... But by walking from Buis-les-Baronnies, you will realize that lavender is very close!

Author’s recommendation

The road is passable from April to November. Some areas in the plain can be visited all year round.

Outside the summer flowering period, spring (May, June) and autumn (September, October) are ideal, especially for photographers and discovery enthusiasts. And most offers are available to welcome you.

If you want to admire the lavender in bloom, the months of June and July are those to privilege. We invite you to consult the flowering periods according to the geographical sectors.

Turn-by-turn directions

This territory straddling Drôme and Hautes-Alpes has preserved a certain quality of life, with a touch of modernity ! It is also an essential territory for the cultivation of fine lavender.

After Rosans, the route crosses Saint André de Rosans, near its 12th century priory. The road then rises to reach the highlands of Baronnies to Chauvac, where lavender plays hide and seek with the forest ...

We then go down to Orpierre and the Buëch valley, land of climbing, mountain biking, apples and ... lavender !! Then we go up the Céans to Laborel and its distillery.

The route then takes you to Saint-Auban-sur-Ouvèze. It will only be up to you to join Vaison-la-Romaine, crossing Buis-Les-Baronnies.
