Live a Lavandissime experience at the House of Lavender!
A family history at the origin
The House of Lavender – Domaine Lavandaïs was once the small sheepfold called “Des Arredons” of Mr. César Brun, great-grandfather of the current owners. Grazing his flocks of sheep and goats in the area, he began to collect and cultivate fine lavender in the 1940s. At the time, the fields were cut with a sickle, then a few days later after drying, the distiller bought the bunches of lavender and brought them to the distillery in Saint-Marcel d’Ardèche to extract the essential oil.
Then time passed, and the small sheepfold stopped being exploited for more than 20 years, resisting as best it could the tests of time. In the 90’s it was bought, and thanks to the imagination and restoration work of its new owners the Lavender Museum was born and opened in 2002.
In 2015, Pascal and Nathalie Brun, great-grandchildren of César Brun, bought back the estate of their ancestors.
Today, Nathalie and Pascal have developed tourist activities around the lavender estate, and they share with passion and enthusiasm this know-how passed down from generation to generation with visitors from all over the world.
