    Great place for walks, there are lots of way marked. I did it by bike on 3 sides. For me bike side Malaucene remains the most beautiful, the landscape breathtaking throughout the ascent. The side Bedoin more in forest let you discover the landscape from chalet Reynard. Falls remains the more accessible to the non initiated. The landscape is also quite nice initially with the change of color and smell. Provide a small jacket back down. I did also in trail version from Flassan and I discovered the Ventoux from another angle. In 3 weeks I went up 6 x and always as friendly. For the memories I you Council the shop at the top of the Ventoux, cheaper than the chalet Reynard.

    A site to attend. The view is breathtaking. The grandiose landscape. The place appealed to the large or small

    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!

    On the road to top. For the sporty hiker and hardlopers koopper a challenge. On the mountain bike spicy, with the race bike a long climb. Not athletic or encourage the sporting challengers, then you can on the engine or car to the top for a nice view. On top of the mountain blowing hard.

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