The route combines discovering the different facets of this legendary massif, its sheltered combes and wild valleys, its “perched” villages and their local products.
Much older than the Alps, which it saw being formed, Mont Ventoux rises like a beacon to the south, watching over the Dentelles de Montmirail. It alone offers a wide variety of landscapes and climates on each of its slopes. The route takes in the foothills of this iconic massif linking Provence and the Alps, an area of wilderness, farming, heritage – and hiking!
