Bédoin

Bédoin is an ideal village for walkers, cyclists, good food and drink, and discovery tours of the flora and fauna of the Alps. But Bédoin itself is also worth a visit. Especially the old village center - where the most important fortified city...

Mont Ventoux

Bédoin is located at the foot of Mont Ventoux - a legendary and mythical place. Driving to the top (by any means of transport - 21.2 km from kilometre zero) through the cedar forest is almost a "must" when you are on holiday here.

Gorges de la Nesque

A beautiful tour (with any vehicle)! Departure from Villes-sur-Auzon and after approximately 20 kilometres you will reach the “belvédère de Castellaras” at an altitude of 737 meters. But on the way it is worthwhile to stop and enjoy the view...

The region of Sault

If you continue from the point de vue of the Gorges de la Nesque towards Sault, you will pass the pretty village of Monieux on your left. Take a moment to visit this village.

Sault itself is an old fortified village, situated on a rocky spur...

Perched villages

Montbrun-les-Bains is a small village that leans against a hill at an altitude of 600 meters opposite Mont Ventoux. This location protects the village against mistral and heat. The old clock tower and the beautiful fountain are striking. The water...

The region of Malaucène

You can also drive up Mont Ventoux from Malaucène. This side is perhaps a little less steep than the ascent from Bédoin but more irregular. After about 15 km you will reach the Mont Serein ski station with Chalet Liotard, where you can eat...

Les Dentelles de Montmirail

The Dentelles de Montmirail are bizarre shaped mountaintops close to Vaison-la-Romaine. The mountains consist of very many pointed peaks, making it appear to be made of lace ("dentelles"). It is a beautiful nature area for walking! Suzette is located...

Wine villages

Châteauneuf du Pape, Beaumes-de-Venise, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Séguret, ... the vineyards here share the appellations "Côtes du Rhone". Séguret and Gigondas are real postcard villages (definitely worth a visit!), situated...

Carpentras

On Sunday there is a flea market in Carpentras on the Parking des Platanes. There is also a market throughout the city on Friday morning. Since 1996, this market has been labeled "marché d’exception" thanks to the quality...

In the south of Bédoin

Venasque is a very picturesque village with a beautiful view. Venasque is known for its cherries, so definitely taste theses! To know: the cherries in the Ventoux region have been awarded the IGP label (Indication Géographique Protegée) "Cerises des coteaux du Ventoux".

Start of the Luberon region

From Venasque you can continue to Gordes. You can make a stopover at the Sénanque abbey, the most photographed abbey in France, especially when the lavender is in bloom in the field before. The abbey is still inhabited by Cistercian monks.

Avignon

"Sur le Pont d'Avignon" ... everyone knows this song! This is of course one of the famous places to visit in Avignon. The "Palais des Papes" is also worth a visit. The garden of the palace is free to visit; it offers a beautiful view of the Rhone...
