A five minute walk from La Lavande
is the village of Sarrians, dating to the Tenth Century. Visit the boulangeries to buy
your morning baguettes, the local butcher for fresh and unique meats and cheeses, or the
local outdoor Farmer's market every Sunday on the town square.
If you're interested in wine tasting, we have created a
map of fifteen of the town's
wineries that offer tastings.
Sarrians traces its
origins back to Guillaume the First, Count of Provence, known as the Liberator. He was
buried in 993 in the village church. Sarrians has the remains of its 14th century ramparts and a tower. Also see the 15th c. Brunelly château, the Milord from the late 12th c., the 13th c. Tourreau castle, and the
St. Privat farm.
