The privileged location near major highways, making it an ideal base for its quality of life, a land and ancestral know -how, exceptional environment in the heart of unspoilt nature and rich heritage left by the presence popes during five centuries.

Watching the Mont Ventoux... " Pierre Vaussais - Fall 80
