The purpose of most vacations is to take a break from the everyday hustle and bustle in search of some restorative, blissful Zen. From meditation vacations to mindfulness journeys through the great outdoors and beyond, options abound. But might I make a suggestion? Book a stay in a field of lavender for the most restorative and relaxing vacay.

I know, I know, it does kind of sound like the plot of a romantic movie about an innkeeper in the South of France, but these places exist all over the world—some even United States. You’ll get a dreamy getaway, plus you’ll be surrounded by the purple plant that offers relaxing and sleep-promoting properties (i.e. the stuff of rejuvenating vacation magic).

Keep scrolling to see some of the lush lavender farm vacation spots.
