Have you ever heard the term that the adventure is around the corner? I have probably driven from ottawa to montreal over 100 times and never remembered to venture to the beautiful MAISON LAVANDE. The good news is that I put it in my calendar and made a date with 3 out of 4 kids. Maison Lavande is such a gem nestled in a farming community called Saint-Eustache. When we got there I could smell the lavender already before even seeing the rolling fields.
Family Outing Ideas -Dresses by SPELL The GYPSY
Summer is the perfect season to just explore, Outdoor picnics and family fun. Some of our best memories. MAISON Lavande is a lush field of lavender as far as the eye can see. The wide open space is just perfect for any occasion.
I ordered a few items ONLINE from Maison Lavande. They have a collection of beauty and household products that are incredibly beneficial and healing. Aroma Therapy and cleaning products are just so amazing. Due to COVID, its nice to know the online option is available.
The setup and landscape filled with lavender, open fields, and shops is just beautiful. We packed a small picnic for the family (pets included by the way) planned a walk around sunset and grabbed some frozen yogurt from the cafe. Feeling totally relaxed and carefree in nature.
The season is definitely not long and if you want to plan a visit NOW is the time. Over the years I have fallen in love with the benefits of lavender. When the children were babies I used to add a small drops into bath time routine and under their feet for a calming effect. Over the years venturing into holistic nutrition I learned that lavender is healing for insomnia, migraine headaches, clearing respiratory passages and soothing insect bites just to name a few. The smell is so beautiful and its something that will remain all year long. I took advantage of getting some dried lavender for a Creme Brûlée recipe I’ve been dying to try.
My kids are always researching cool ideas and we are now in the process of making a homemade Lavender tea recipe. The House has been around for over 15 years. The family of Maison Lavande are so lovely and I adore supporting family owned businesses. During non-COVID time there are many activities and concerts. Its best to jump on the website and check out whats going on. I saw a few Bed and Breakfast spots along the drive and I will plan to stay in the area a bit longer the next time.
