Lavandula's La Primavera Festival is a celebration of spring, and part of a time- honoured tradition of welcoming the new season of bloom.

Lavandula's historic 100-acre farm will continue this tradition with musicians, rural demonstrations, artisan stalls, pony rides, puppet shows, tours of the original 1860s stone farmhouse and plenty of great European-style food including a festival-sized paella (or two), an Italian barbecue and the soon-to-be world famous pizzas straight from the wood- red oven. Come and say hi to the farm animals or take a relaxing stroll through the gardens. Lavandula continues to support the important Swiss Italian heritage of the region.
