Favorite thing: What an amazing experience, to walk the streets of an ancient Roman town and visit its amphitheater. You can do just that in "Vaison" among these excavated ruins that are in surprisingly good shape. The public restroom still has seats, even! And make sure you visit for the Marche, the open air market for the most wonderful food sensations of Provence. Saturday morning, bright and early.

Fondest memory: The Mont Ventoux is a 1910-m high conical peak that's visible from far across the surrounding countryside.
The Mont Ventoux is only the highest part of a mountain range running from the village of Montbrun-les-Bains in the east to Malaucène in the west.
The D164 road from Sault to the top of Mont Ventoux is 26 km: 20 km to the Chalet Reynard ski station and the 6 km to the peak.
