not very welcoming staff, at the ticket counter a rude lady started asking my friend to put the mask higher as it was at the nose... when the space was open and outside there were hardly anyone. Even their guide tour Peggy was putting it out and touching it all the time...in a closed room with nearly 40 people.

After that a very nice lady, grandaughter of the place's founder drive us in a train explaining very well about the history of the place.

A guide tour Peggy took over. She wasn't aware of many people that couldn't fit in the room and couldn't hear the explanation. Worst still, she parasited her speech with unsuitable personal comments ( about her dog, her sciatica, her sport routine... that nobody cares) Two people left the room a bit pissed that was taking soooo long. Two old people with sticks couldn't sit in the room as it was a very big group.

At the cafe the same lady with glasses wasn't even capable of doing a latte (advertised in a menu) and have to ask someone else, forgetting the details of the drink.

the place is nice but lack of a maintainace: dry bed flowers - messy back yard - a worker doing noise just in front of cafe terrace. you get the idea the main thing here is the shop: sell - sell - sell.

I tried to call 7 times to ask if we could visit and make a reservation but they kept me waiting and waiting. They just put the telephone on the side and don’t answer. No service. No visit. Shame I wanted to go.

Worth a visit
Jul 2020
A delightful place, the tour is interesting and the ride in the little train through the lavender fields is fun. The shop is one of those where things just keep jumping into your basket! The place is family orientated. Don't forget to wear your mask.

Boring, and people crowded in small rooms
Jun 2020 • Couples
A small train brings you around the lavande field, nice view, but surprisingly no mandatory mask, despite the train was crowded. Then, everybody in a small room to see a (actually interesting) film on the origin of the lavande cultivation and use. Afterward, in the very small museum everybody crowded around the guide stucked for almost an hour, didn't get much more info wrt the film. And, quite a different covid-19 approach wrt other sites..

Amazingly good value
Sep 2019 • Couples
We stopped here enroute to Avignon and expected much less than what we received for our 6€90pp. For this we received a long small group tour (in our language) with extensive information about the growing, harvesting and post harvest production of lavender oil. We were also shown a professional quality video and given a demonstration of how the lavender oil is extracted.
The museum has a great array of old stills and harvesting equipment, which we found very interesting.
Following the tour we enjoyed lavender ice cream - a real treat.
If you have the time, definitely visit this place.

Guided tour was brilliant. Learnt so much about growing and using lavender. Museum is surrounded by beautiful fields of lavender. Wish that they had sold little plants too. Will definitely go again next time I am in the Ardeche

Totally worth doing it
Jul 2019 • Couples
The guided tour with Mathias was incredible. He told us about the history, the function of lavendel, and some interesting facts. Not alone was it informative, he also brought it in a very humorous way. If you are in the neighborhood I would really recommend the visit and try their lavendel ice cream.

Only French tours
Sep 2018 • Couples
We drove about 25 km on a slow and windy road off highway A7 to get to Musée de la Lavande at 4pm and we were very disappointed. You can only get into the museum if you go on a tour, and there are only French tours after 3pm. So the drive was a total waste for us.

We did buy some lavender soap in their gift shop, only to find the same item later at a lower cost in town!
