SURROUNDINGS

BEDOIN

You will find all you need at the pleasant, little town of Bedoin: shops, supermarket, doctors, dentists etc. Busy with holidaymakers in summer, in true rural fashion, it keeps to the seasons the rest of the year - cherries and asparagus in spring, grape harvesting in autumn whereas winter brings the truffle season, hunting and olive picking. Monday morning is market day and colourful stalls line the streets and locals gather to get the latest news! You will enjoy a drink or meal on the terrace of a cafe or restaurant in the shade of an old plane tree, or you may prefer a game of boules, a stroll in the old streets, a seat by a fountain, a book from the local library or some wine tasting at a local "cave".

MONT VENTOUX (altitude 1912 metres)

It is a refreshing, leafy refuge from the heat in the hot summer months. Popular with scientists because of its variety of climates and rich flora, representing rare and fragile specimens found in North Africa and even Arctica, UNESCO has made it a Biosphere Reserve. The fauna is abundant: boars, deer, mountain sheep and chamois being among the larger species.
