Guy Mombel, saffron producer and ceramist, has obtained the Park mark for the quality of his saffron and his commitment to the development of the Verdon. Discover the demanding culture of this precious flower which is the only one in the world to give a spice.
In the heart of the Verdon Park, in the small village of Esparron de Verdon, there is a small magical garden, "le jardin au Safran".
It is a small plot planted only with bulbs of crocus sativus, which will give in autumn precious ephemeral flowers.
