Had the Barefoot Blogger known lavender fields are so close to Uzes, and how fabulous they are in person, I would have been visiting them much before now.
Thank goodness I found out how to get to some of the best fields.
There’s more than one way to keep lavender year round. It’s more lasting than sachets and bouquets.
Last week I discovered lavender salt!
There’s a tiny village just outside Uzes that sells all types of local specialties, including olive oil that’s milled on site. The store and the moulin à huile are inside a garage attached to the proprietor’s home.
The most surprising discovery was the building attached to the opposite side of her house — the remains of a church from the 11th century!
This is part of the joy of living in this part of the world. A tiny, out-of-the-way place can be an amazing find. Ancient buildings are still standing, alongside some of the most unique local items for sale.
So far, I’ve tried the lavender salt. It’s a winner. The rest is yet to be enjoyed!
