Over the last few years, Valensole, a small village in the Alpes de Haute Provence, has been experiencing a new phenomenon. Every summer, thousands of Chinese tourists visit the village, the lavender fields and the region’s chateaux, and delight in the local traditions. Although Paris is long accustomed to the admiration of Chinese visitors, here the locals, shopkeepers, restaurateurs are experiencing the excitement of these tourists from afar for the first time. This revolution in Provence is largely due to a Asian television series, which was filmed in the middle of the lavender fields, making this part of France, a romantic paradise for the Chinese. A phenomenon that has changed the lives of a handful of Provençals.
