These gorges just down the road from Sault and Mt Ventoux are stunning. The wild flowers at this time of year in The verges are like a rock garden and the views across the gorge superb. Tunnels hewn out of rock, fantastic echos and even...More

We drove the route up alongside the Gorges and stopped a number of times to appreciate the scenery. In late May the hillsides were green and full of wildflowers, and the air full of the scent of wild thyme. The promise of lavender in the...More

The road is narrow, with almost no shoulder, but it is wide enough for two cars to pass easily. Some, however, pass faster than others. We were there in September, so there were still a lot of bicyclists vying for road space. The views are...More

Rode through this gorge as part of a cycle sportive. Wow. What an amazing place. Don't go in a car, it's a waste of time. Ride through it. A hot sunny Sunday, no traffic, no noise. Just me and 15 miles of downhill roads. Perfection.

Modest climbs and splendid views - highly recommended. Roadways are smooth, minimal auto traffic, several good restaurants, and water stops...neat tunnels, too.

With a grade of no more than 5% and very little of that, this ride is a cake walk and always fun. We ascended the D5, which by itself was pretty cool, had lunch at a gourmet stop in Monieux, and descended the Gorge. Had...More

Hi, Well we were staying at Bedoin prior to cycling Ventoux but didn't want to come back the same way. At Chalet Reynard 6 K from the top, the three routes up Ventoux meet, so we took the Sault route down for maybe 15k... More
