Sault, Provence


Fine wine, fabulous food and an excellent array of cycling routes to explore. The area in and around Sault, offers the chance to enjoy the famous French cuisine and culture whilst also conquering the monument standing above this beautiful region, Mont Ventoux. Sault is a delightful old walled town, surrounded by lavender fields and perched upon a small hill. Sault is ideally located both to ride Ventoux, and to discover the countryside around Provence.


Where to Ride?

There are three ways up to the summit of Ventoux you can access from Sault and this is why most people come to the area. However make sure you do not miss riding the Gorge de la Nesque, a beautiful Gorge with the road cut into the side of it. 

Where to Stay?

Staying is this charming old hill top village is like a step back in time. Our pick of the hotels are Hotel d'Albion or Hostellerie du Val de Sault. Contact us if you have any questions about either. 

Where to Eat?

The Boulangerie on the corner of the D950 and D942 in the centre of town does the best freshly made sandwiches for lunch!

What to do, other than ride?

Other than cycling and spending time in the town,take a tour of the lavender fields, or vineyards that scatter the area.  

What Climb not to miss?

The giant of Provence, Ventoux.

What you didn't know about Sault?

The biggest Lavender festival is held here on the 15th of August where games, competitions, or any activities that have to do with lavender, occur.
