UNESCO has awarded Mont Ventoux the status of a biosphere nature reserve as it is home to exceptional flora and fauna in a unique natural environment. At the foot of the mountain, on the southern side, you will find the plain of Comtat with the Côtes du Ventoux vineyards and the truffle plantations, the cherry trees that flower in springtime and the famous strawberry fields of Carpentras. To the north, you will find the Val de Sault with its expanse of lavender fields as well as the Valley of Toulourenc with its villages nestling high up in the mountains.
“I have been up the Ventoux on several occasions; by bike, on foot and also by car. It remains a special experience every single time.”
