in the "Blue Country"
Sault is a small Provencal village set on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Vallée Bleue, with lavender fields as far as the eye can see, at the foot of the majestic Mont Ventoux. It's also a 'green resort', one of six French sites protected by UNESCO as a world heritage site. The Pays de Sault has managed to preserve intact the wild character of Haute Provence. Its territory, the largest in the Vaucluse, is essentially devoted to agriculture on a human scale.
In perfect harmony with the neighbouring communes, its inhabitants have developed a strong tradition of hospitality based on an authentic cultural heritage. It is also a centre for excursions and hikes to Mont Ventoux, the Gorges de la Nesque, the Val de Sault, the Vallée du Toulourenc, the Plateau d'Albion and the Montagne de Lure, during which you can discover hiking and mountain-biking trails, as well as villages and monuments from the Romanesque period.
