Everyone who goes to South France to pursue the beauty of lavender will not miss the classic scenery of “Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque” (Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque). The quaint monastery and the continuous lavender fields interweave the summer of South France.
If you are lucky enough to visit the Abbaye de Sénanque when the lavender fields bloom – between late June and early August – the colours of the blue sky, pale grey stone, green leaves, and purple flowers are guaranteed to enchant.

A fun fact about Abbaye de Senanque:
Today, the monks still follow the precepts of Cistercian monastic life: liturgical prayer sung in church; silent reading, meditation and prayer; and manual and intellectual work.
