If activity is your thing, this area is perfect for climbing, cycling, mountain biking, trekking, golf, tennis and swimming.
The apartment was clean and warm and we loved the view to Mont Ventoux, still snowy on top. The local rep was a very nice guy with excellent English.
We had a good time and loved Bonnieux. We had a dinner in L`Arome in the village and thought it was good but a little over-priced compared to other places. The best lunch was in Roussillon, at a smallish place called Le P`tit Gourmand, run by a Corsican couple.
