Admire the north face of Mont Ventoux from the village of Brantes … An unforgettable moment.
brante and the Toulourenc valley
Fortified village, Brantes is hanging somehow on the side of the mountain of Blaye. Perched village facing the summit close to Mont Ventoux, the narrow cobbled streets and passages take you from the ruins of his feudal castle to the church overlooking the valley. The village also hosts many art craftsmen willing to share their passion for traditional traditional craftsmanship: santonnière, faïencière …
The Toulourenc takes its source at the foot of the Montagne de Banne (towards Aulan), crosses a first series of very picturesque gorges between the Mountain of Buc and Fontcouverte, then leads on Reilhanette before going along the north face of the Mont Ventoux. At the end of a journey of about thirty kilometers, the river flows into the Ouvéze near Mollans-sur-Ouvèze.
Along the valley you will discover the pretty village of Savoillans and Saint-Léger-du-Ventoux.
