Your tour programme

Over the week, you’ll take the time to discover the region from three towns where you’ll be staying : Malaucène, Sault and Montbrun-les-Bains. You’ll be accompanied by a local guide for all your activities and be free to linger and explore the rest of the time. Starting from the southern foot slopes of Mont Ventoux, you’ll discover the spa at Malaucène and then hike to the summit of the Giant of Provence to admire the sunset. Further east, near Sault, the impressive Gorges de la Nesque await you for a hike retracing 300,000 years of history. The last part of your stay takes you to the north face of Mont Ventoux and one of the most beautiful hilltop villages in France.

This is a real sensory experience in one of the most authentic parts of Provence!
