The village of Sault is perched on a rocky spur, in a plain composed of fields of wheat, spelled and lavender which is revealed at the end of a turn. At only 26 km from the top of Mont Ventoux, cyclists climb the Giant of Provence by the sweetest route!

The first documented human presence dates back to prehistoric times and never ceased to grow until the 19th century.

The local products of the country of Sault are as numerous as they are varied: honey, lamb from the country of Sault, Ventoux pork raised in the open air and its charcuterie, white nougats, black and macaroons, goat cheeses, aromatic plants, lavender and its derivatives.
