The tourist service at Entrechaux :This cycle route will take you to Saint Léger, Brantes and Savoillans – three villages of the Toulourenc Valley.
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.
