Gorges de la Nesque / Val de Sault
|The Nesque river Canyons (Gorges de la Nesque)
Be careful at all times, the road is narrow but the view magnificent! This itnerary which follows the tourist road of the Gorges de la Nesque remains the most "sporting" road proposed : 22km of progressive climb in the heart of a remarkable landscape. The Gorges de la Nesque are a beautiful hydro-geological breakdown from which rocks seem to have been drawn up. This wild canyon is marked out by tunnels and by belvederes, namely the belvedere of Castelleras in front of the "Rocher de Cire". In Monieux you will discover the Val de Sault, its scents of lavender in summer, the relief which surrounds it and gives to this country a sensation to be protected.
|The Albion Highlands
A gorgeous patchwork of fields of blue lavender and golden wheat, the “Plateau d'Albion”, or Albion Highlands, stretch from the Luberon hills to the very confines of Vaucluse county, marked by Mont Ventoux, the Baronnies range, and Lure Mountain. This cycling trip starts from Sault and covers the wide-open spaces on the Albion highlands, where time seems to have stood still. The breathtaking landscapes instill sensations of isolation, beauty, and total freedom.
