The tourist service at Cabrières-d'Avignon :

Based in an old Provençal stone house, the Lavender Museum is a must for all nature lovers interested in true fine lavender. The Lincelé Family began this fabulous project in 1991, inviting visitors to discover the true lavender of Provence, "fine lavender".
Every weekday from May to September, the museum runs creative activities relating to the sense of smell.
