Good to know

The landscape on the Valensole Plateau is always changing. The lavender fields remain standing for 3-5 years at a time. Afterwards, the field is planted with cereals or similar crops to allow the soil to recover. New lavender fields are created next to them. So the photo locations change constantly over the years. Before each trip, we carefully research the current situation. Among other things, we visit the fields 1-2 days before the photo trip begins in order to get an up-to-date picture. This ensures that we are able to bring our guests to the right place at the right time.

What our clients say


Experiencing Provence with great, like-minded people was a real highlight. The endless rolling purple fields are truly a feast for the eyes and the associated fragrance simply beguiling. A real benefit for participants is the shared enthusiasm for photography, the trained eye for extraordinary motifs and last but not least, the great commitment of the tour guide, who spares no effort and leaves nothing to chance in order to offer the best that is possible on location. A perfectly organised photo trip down to the last detail. Jenny personally visited the many beautiful lavender locations the day before our arrival and enabled us to photograph the most beautiful fields far and wide, at the best time and in the best light. This photo trip is definitely recommendable. Thank you Amazing Views.

A successful photo trip, great photo spots and perfect timing. Thanks to Jenny's good preparation, we were always in the right place at the right time. The motifs were well worth getting up early for. Highly recommended!

Lavender Magic Provence, July 2022


This was my second booking with Amazing Views and I highly recommend them! Jennifer handled the uncertainty of the lavender being harvested early with grace and professionalism. It was a great trip.

Today the photo tour ends after breakfast and you will be driven to Marseille airport in time. 


Our hotel is located in a pretty Provençal village right at the entrance to the old town. It is the perfect base to reach the Valensole plateau in just a few minutes' drive. The hotel offers modernly designed and air-conditioned rooms, perfect for taking a little rest from the summer heat at night and during breaks. The accommodation's garden offers a beautiful pool and views of the old town and the village's castle. Breakfast is rich and excellent and during fine weather, it is served in the hotel's secluded garden.
