Every year, on the 15th of August, Sault, modest capital city of the blue country in Vaucluse, offers its Lavender Festival. All day long, exhibitions and demonstrations attract lots of traditional local culture lovers. Let’s mention the sickle-cut lavender competition, the processions with horse teams, old bicycles and folk groups, the shows on podium, the ‘book day’ and the craftsmen stalls. See also HERE and THERE.

Sault is a quiet and quaint village. Old shop windows give the feeling that time goes by there not as fast as elsewhere. Here is the prettiest old shop, well decorated for the occasion. The photos of this article are from 2007, 2008 and 2010. Place your mouse’s arrow on a pic to read the date when it was taken, and click to enlarge.

Sylvie has put up her stall about spinning and weaving. See also HERE. I let you admire the colourful processions.

If you recognize yourself on my photos and wish to receive free watermarkless pics, or if you want to do an outing or a hike with us, or merely to share impressions or feelings, don’t hesitate to drop me a line (link above).         Huberaime

    Hi Hubert, great photos (as usual) and I could kick myself for not attending. Nice to see your stall too. Maybe I’ll make it next year? The Venetian carnival/flânerie in Martigues is in September. Are you interested?
