Of course, when going to France to ride the Mont Ventoux once or many more times, the best option to stay is Bédoin itself, starting place of the Ventoux most famous approach, along the Tom Simpson memorial through the desert. Moreover, Bédoin is a nice cosy little place with enough places to eat and stay, including hotels, campings and holiday house rentals. And the weather is, for most time of the year, splendid.
From Bédoin, you can also discover the rest of the Vaucluse and Provence. The Luberon mountains, Gordes, Avignon, Orange, Vaison-la-Romain are within reach, either by car or by bike. And if you stay closeby, in the “Mont Ventoux bay”, you will find cycling trails apt for almost each of us.
If you come by car, probably the best option to get a full immersion of the local live is to rent a holiday house, possibly with swimming pool, to enjoy the marvellous sun and light of the southern French sun and to refresh from the heat. Below, you find a selection of holiday houses offered by Belvilla. Another very good source to book your holiday house is Homeaway.
