Visitors are comfortable in our spacious, 64-seat screening room, where you can see the mechanical cutting done by the Clier tractors (Clier is the name of the tractor makers, located in Malaucène), the harvesting and the distillation of true lavender done at “Le Château du Bois” lavender estate, located in the village of Lagarde d’Apt at 1100 metres altitude. Le Château du Bois is the family estate of the Lincelé family. Film lasts 10 minutes.
The Lavender Museum also shows a special documentary on planting true lavender, in HD. Indeed, each year in March, the Lincelé family goes to its lavender nursery and takes approximately 170,000 seedlings to renew 10 hectares of its lavender fields. It take about 17,000 seedlings of true lavender to plant one hectare. The Lincelé family grows 80 hectares of lavender. This film lasts 4 minutes. These two documentaries help visitors understand lavender-growing and show the preserved setting in which our lavenders are grown.
