Activities in Mont Ventoux
Our cellar stands at the foot of Mont Ventoux, in the heart of a region boasting an abundance of geographical diversities and hence a great many sporting activities:
The summit of Mont Ventoux:
A once in a lifetime experience! You’ll feel as if you’re caught between two worlds, one, the typical mountain atmosphere of the North face and the more “Provencal” South face.
Here’s the exercise: Climb to the top of Mont Ventoux and aim for the highest observation point, located above the Ventoux souvenir shop (Magasin Souvenir du Ventoux), one of our local partners (see the “Partners” page).
Once you’ve reached this point, stand facing the Alps, to the East: then simply turn your head to the left or to the right to change region and geography in a glance. The view is truly breathtaking, if not totally disorientating.
No, you’re not dreaming, skiing is indeed possible in Provence. Meet you at the foot of the pistes in a few minutes.
North face of Mont Ventoux :
This face boasts a real mountain atmosphere because it faces north and also due to its proximity with other neighbouring mountains.
You’ll also find the Mont Ventoux snow report .
South face of Mont Ventoux :
With your feet in the snow and your view of magnificent Provence, with its softened reliefs and more “Provencal” atmosphere.
This is perhaps where a “change of scenery” takes on its full meaning, because in addition to having your feet in snow, you’ll be facing beautiful Provence, with its softened reliefs and a more of a “Provencal” atmosphere.

Advice to enthusiasts intent on taking on Mont Ventoux on calf-power alone: don’t take the ascent lightly, you’ll need a good dose of humility and courage if you want to come out unscathed.
