  • With a large group of people including youth, people below the poverty line, people with MENTAL HEALTH problems or mental disability and boys in wheelchair are together we walked up the mountain. Dispense, collaborate and leverage each other's qualities made that we all have reached the top. Above enjoyed the victory of everyone's goals and the beautiful view! Mountain and an experience never to be forgotten

  • Several times that we go, by car, hikes by ridges etc... : Still beautiful with its lunar landscapes! Mecca of cycling, this Summit is assailed bikes and tourists of all kinds the summer. But the atmosphere is good! A sunrise at the top of the Ventoux is worth seeing, but will wake up early, and know the good spots 😉 Beware the Mont Ventoux well named: even when the hot wind blows and it is more than advisable to carry what cover!

  • Wonderful view. Do a completely clear and windless day. Plan a sweater because you lose a lot of degrees: 8 ° on average...
