Château Ferrassières is a great base for exploring the region. Visit the lovely villages of Sault, Vaison la Romaine and Bedoin or explore the quaint little markets where local produce, including truffles, is on display. If you like an active lifestyle, you will be spoilt for choice. Cycle to the top of Mont Ventoux, anyone? Or else, just enjoy the splendid nature of the area with its colourful backdrop of lavender and ochre.
