Blue, blue, blue – as far as the eye can see…..
Bleu Lavande continues to set the trend with its innovative ideas. The season brings new installations, activities and more interesting packages than ever before. The second most important organic producer of lavender in North America, Bleu Lavande has upgraded its production centre and added a themed ‘Poetry Trail’ with stories, legends and poems, inspired by the fragrant blue plants.
Every weekend, visitors can enjoy a Swedish massage or a foot massage in the oh-so-relaxing outdoor relaxation areas dotted around the lavender fields, where Mother Nature supplies a soothing soundtrack.
Other activities include Lundi Bleu Pastel (Pastel Blue Mondays when visitors can try their hand at painting), Mardi Bleu Classique (Classical Blue Tuesdays - concerts of classical music) and Mercredi Vivre en Bleu (Blue Wednesdays - yoga and massage therapy outdoors). On Jeudis Pouce Bleu (‘Blue’ Thumb Thursdays – yes, we know that it’s green thumb, but we’re talking lavender here!) there are workshops aimed at wannabe gardeners who want to learn how to grow this most versatile of plants.
And what about this unusual way to enjoy lavender ? On the menu no less! Lavender is a key ingredient of the Soupers Lavandula (Lavandula Dinners), creating sensual pleasures for the palate, the nose and the eye….. And check out La lavande en fête (Lavender Festival) which runs July 23-25, showcasing lavender and its many benefits.
