Herbes de Provence garden in Eygalières

The Sentiers de l'Abondance opened not so far ago and had been on my "to visit list" for a while.
And I luckily found time to the opening party for the new season last Saturday.

It was a real shame that the weather was not with us but I found in love with the place.Charming people in a charming location.

I still will need to go back when weather is nicer and the garden is filled with more plants but I loved the place.

Family heritage, set in a 3 hectares (around 6 acres) old farm house, the Sentiers de l'Abondance (litterally the Abondance Path) grows all kind of herbs (Thyme, Verbena, Rosemary, Mint) and other plants such as geranium.
The visit will take you in the 8 sections (herbs, vegetables, medicinal plants, etc)
The property transform its Verbena, mint, elderberry, geranium into a great "sirop" (syrup) which you can drink in water or, even better in wine.
Mint and Verbena are also cristallised and are yummy yummy.
Products can also be found on the Friday morning market in Eygalières.
Workshops are organised all year round (making your own organic syrup, cristallised mint, your own herbal medecine....)

The property is open for visit on Wednesday and Sartuday from 2 to 5pm from March to June 21st
and then Wednesday, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 2pm until end of September 2016.
Private visits can easily be arranged when contacting them.
