The Giant of Provence
Mont-Ventoux, mammoth beauty
Nicknamed the “Giant of Provence” and “mountain you can see from afar”, Mont-Ventoux is so famous that everyone has a pet name for it. And here you are at the summit, perched at an altitude of 1,909 metres. Frankly, you could be at the end of the Earth… Everything seems so quiet here and yet so intense: the stark white of the mountain’s limestone cap creates a quasi-lunar landscape and could easily be mistaken for snow. And of course, we simply love the view extending all the way to the Rhône Valley and Mediterranean Sea to the South and the white-tinted Mont Blanc to the North… A stunning, 360° spectacle and fitting reward for the steep ascent.
