Create an itinerary including Mt Ventoux
The largest mountain in the region, Mt Ventoux hosts a section of the Tour de France cycling race. The biological distinctiveness of the mountain was recognized by UNESCO in 1990. The mountaintop is bare limestone, which makes its peak appear from a distance to be snow-capped all year round. There are three routes available for those who wish to climb the mountain. Put Mt Ventoux at the forefront of your travel plans using our Brantes trip itinerary builder website.

  • Nice day's walk. We climbed steeply up to the top, seeing beautiful views on the way, and then took a longer, less steep route back, at times across loose scree.

  • This mountain is a myth! We climbed it from Bedoin and descended through Malaucene. This turned out to be the ideal combination! The views are worth the climb! Special atmosphere!

  • Three times up in 2016. Love it
  • 20 years to dream about cycling it, 6 months to train and 2 hours to grind up. I sobbed at the top. One off the bucket list and definitely worth doing. You can also drive but that’s cheating.
