One Of Quebec's Most Popular Lavender Farms Is Moving To A Stunning New Location
There's nothing Montrealers love more than exploring the natural beauty all around, like the dreamy fields of Bleu Lavande. Moving to a new location less than an hour and a half from the city, it's the perfect place to go when you're in need of an escape not just in the summer, but now throughout the year.
MTL Blog reached out to Bleu Lavande to learn all about its plans for the new season and its new location.
We're just blooming with excitement to discover it for ourselves.

Bleu Lavande is moving the lavender farm that people have known and loved in Stanstead to a new home in Magog.
Coming along are the iconic rows of lavender, picnic areas and the boutique filled with stunning lavender-infused products.
And not to worry if your furry friends want to check it out — pups on a leash are welcome outside, too.
There will also be a "vélo gourmand" (a roving bike offering snacks and lavender drinks), foot massages and a workshop area on site.
It's becoming an immersive experienceCourtesy of Bleu Lavande
Although the lavender season is only in the summer (the plants will be cut mid-fall), that doesn't mean it isn't worth the drive to the Eastern Townships throughout the year.
Partnering with Moment Factory, Bleu Lavande will offer an immersive experience — even in the off-season — called Champs Chromatiques ("Chromatic Fields"), an indoor simulation emulating the sights and sounds of the lavender fields swaying in the wind.
The installation is described as a multisensory, "immersive and interactive multimedia experience" where visitors are invited to "bathe in the colours, sounds and gentle movements of an infinite lavender field."
There will also be an educational spot inside to learn more about horticulture and the history of Bleu Lavande.
When does Bleu Lavande open?
The new location will officially open this year, although no official date has been given.
For now, the plan is to open in late-May.
