    Provence Lavender & Luberon Villages

    It’s a dream for so many people, to photograph the Lavender fields, like purple velvet, splashed with Van Gogh’s yellow Sun Flowers, sweeping through the valleys of Provence and overlooked by picturesque honey-coloured stone villages, perched up high on the hillsides. It’s a once-a-year experience not to be missed. Understandably, so many famous artists came to this region to paint endless canvasses of the vibrant colours, with such extraordinary light.

    Day 1

    Meet at Marseille airport around 12h00 noon. You will be collected from the airport for transfer to your charming hotel in the heart of Provence. Take time to unwind & unpack.

    After a welcome/briefing meeting late afternoon, we set off for a shoot in the picturesque village, followed by an early dinner and another shoot of the Village, nestled in the hillside, with the lights twinkling at sun down.

    Day 2

    Before sunrise, we set off to photograph the Lavender fields in the pale morning light. We will capture different views of the lavender, dotted with small stone shepherd’s huts (Mazet) with the mountains as a backdrop.

    In the afternoon, we return to capture the beautiful blue lavender and sunflowers – a sight and scent to behold! We end the day when the sun sets over the lavender fields.

    Day 3

    We set off again for the lavender and sunflower fields but we head for different locations today, giving you the opportunity of photographing diverse landscapes with varying backdrops, providing a wide array of stunning landscape images at sunrise and sunset.

    Day 4

    We have a relaxed breakfast before checking out of the hotel to depart for the Luberon, characterised by its strikingly picturesque perched, hill-top villages, dating back at least 1000 years (approx. 2hr drive).

    Check in to the hotel and take time to unwind and unpack.

    Late afternoon we photograph the first beautiful Luberon village, with the warm sunshine lighting up the ochre stone colours.

    Day 5

    We spend the next two days capturing some of the most beautiful Lubéron villages.

    You can obtain a wide array of images including perched villages at sunrise and sunset, some with lavender stretching out at the foot of the village and others with wonderful views out across the valley floor with a patchwork of orchards and vineyards. We also capture quaint shots in the narrow streets of the villages with their photogenic shutters and doors.

    We also photograph a beautiful and still working 12th century abbey in a sublime, solitary setting, surrounded by fields of lavender, one of the most iconic sights in Provence.
