You can be active in different ways in the hilly area.
There are endless opportunities for walks through the woods, along vineyards passing by ancient mostly medieval villages. Along the way, you can treat yourself to a picnic on a beautiful viewpoint under the shade of a tree.
Mont Ventoux obviously has tremendous appeal to cyclists but also mountain bikers. The area is perfect to make the necessary climbing mileage for the ultimate attempt to climb the “Bald Mountain”.
From our farmhouse it is also possible to cycle a relatively flat route along the river Ouveze in the direction of the village of Mollans where you can sit and reminisce on a terrace while enjoying a refreshing drink ...
There are other options in the area to enjoy sports. Think of rock climbing in Dentellen, canoeing near Ilse sur la Sorque or the river Ardeche, acrobranch for children in Vaison la Romaine and Mont Ventoux, playing around in and along the waterfront of the river Ouvèze, horseback riding, playing golf at one of the multiple golf courses, fishing at the Lac du Patty etc.
We have created cycling and hiking route tracks for our guests using Wikiloc. You can download the app for free from the wikiloc.com website and start navigating with your mobile device (phone, tablet or specialised device with gps build in). You can download offline maps for navigation. There is also an easy way to upload the tracks to certain Garmin devices.
When u choose the paid version of the app (only 5 euros a year) your mobile phone or tablet will transform into a proffesional gps device. It will make sure you stay, in a detailed way, on the right track and notify you if you are going in the wrong direction.
We are in southern France at 24 miles (40 km) from Avignon and 74 miles (120 km) from Marseille. It is hilly here with many forests, vineyards and olive groves and the Mont Ventoux that extends everywhere.
We will be very pleased to welcome you as our guest.
