In short

A trip along short tourist routes that will aid your discovery of the Mont Ventoux Natural Regional Park.The route takes you all around the giant of Provence without ever needing to climb it.Although it passes through the legendary villages of Bédoin, Malaucène, and Sault, 3 different starting points for a climb up the mountain, the route continues across the slopes of the massif, allowing you to discover the Gorges de la Nesque, the Albion plateau and its lavender fields, the secret Toulourenc valley and hilltop village, Brantes, Vaison la Romaine and its ancient sites, and of course the excellent wine of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The main tourist route in the Nesque remains a busy road in summer, so be careful, as you will be sharing the road with other vehicles. This route is child-friendly, and is accessible to road bikes, touring bikes, or electric bikes. For maximum enjoyment, regular cycling practice is recommended.
