Occasionally perched on hillsides, these villages offer an outstanding view of the steep northern face of the Mont Ventoux. This road is aimed at cyclists in good physical condition. It can be ridden in 2 days, enabling you to enjoy the restful villages.
Between Ventoux and Baronnies, this itinerary will lead you through Toulourenc Valley - 30 kilometres of deep, wild gorges. This athletic cycle route starts in Entrechaux, which is located where the Ouvèze and Toulourenc rivers converge. From here, you will set off to discover three villages of the valley. First, Saint-Léger-du-Ventoux, a small village positioned in a setting at the foot of the Ventoux overlooking a small fertile plain bordering Toulourenc. From here, you will then visit Brantes - a true eagle's nest inhabited by artists and craftspeople where it is serene and offers a vertiginous view of Mont Ventoux. Finally, you will reach Savoillans, lined with meadows and offering views of the crest of Ventoux up to its summit.
