Did you know?

The summit of Mont Ventoux lies at 1909 metres, while Mont Serein on the northern slope reaches an altitude of 1400 metres.

As you climb higher, the fresh air will awaken your thirst for exploring this part of nature.

The Ventoux is a UNESCO classified biosphere reserve, and you can certainly see why when you arrive at Mont Serein – a stop on the northern slope of the ‘Giant of Provence’.
Here, there is a gravel area surrounded by huge green spaces (which will make you really want to get out for a walk!).

And if the wind picks up? Take the kites out! Try teaching the little ones to make them flutter like wings.

VIDEO

A huge range of activities are on offer to suit the whole family: hiking, treetop adventure trails, Dévalkarting… Great memories and plenty of laughs guaranteed!

Countless activities

After a country-style picnic, the children will start to get distracted by the various activities in sight. The ‘air park’ is an inflatable play area which will certainly grab the attention of your toddlers.
And all is well, because it’s time to let your food go down… for them through acrobatics courses, and for the grown-ups, a nice rest sitting on the grass!

Tubbing: sliding down in a rubber ring

Among the wide variety of activities on offer is the chance to slide down an 80 metre long track in a rubber ring!

For the older ones – trampolining

With bungee cords keeping you safe, you can jump up to 9 metres high! It’s an incredible feeling!

Dévalkarting

Whizz downhill at top speed!

Brand new

It is now possible for an adult to supervise their little ones on the trail

Now the children are warmed up (and the parents have had time to relax), head towards the treetop adventure course

As you move through the trees, your sense of balance (and your tolerance of heights!) will be put to the test thanks to 15 obstacle courses – it’s best to keep steady!
Move between wooden logs, wobbly planks and other wires to walk on, and don’t forget to concentrate as much as possible so you don’t trip. Thankfully, a harness and safety line are with you the whole way to ensure you are completely safe!
And to bring this treetop adventure to a close? A zip wire of course!

Go for a walk with a pony

As you adjust to being back on solid ground, embark on a walk accompanied by ponies.

After chance to stroke the ponies and get to know these new friends a little better, the children will climb on their backs and parents are tasked with leading the ponies down the path. Taking small steps, Dad is tempted to lead the pony into a gallop – it’ll make the little ones shriek with laughter!

Good to know

For the rest of the year, the ponies can be found in the ‘Crinières du Mont Ventoux’ equestrian centre and can be taken for walks around Beaumont du Ventoux (booking required)
