As you leave the town of Bedoin behind, driving along the legendary road leading up to the peak of Mont Ventoux, before reaching the oak and cedar forests on the south slopes of Mont Ventoux, you come to the peaceful, lovely hamlet called Sainte Colombe. Here, you have arrived at La Garance, an old Provencal farmhouse transformed into a very cozy hotel with a B&B attitude, in 1992.

Once settled into one of the 17 simple but comfortable rooms (new bedding) equipped with the latest technology (free WIFI, flat-screen TV), you can explore the shop near the reception desk with its delicious local products – mainly organic – part of a choice selection.
Explore the fragrant Mediterranean garden and relax by the refreshing pool, under the shade of the oleander, enjoy a drink facing sun-bathed Mont Ventoux. In the morning, breakfast is served on the east-facing terrace, in the glory of the rising sun. You’ll especially love the locally-made jams and seasonal fruits from nearby growers. Your hosts have chosen to preserve and share with you the local heritage and bio-diversity of Provencal environs by working along sustainable tourism lines – and have been awarded the "Clef Verte" label for their efforts. La Garance, a place to stay again and again, an address to share with friends and family.
