Le Géant de Provence - magnificent Mont Ventoux

Looking even more magnificent today under a cloudless blue sky surrounded by the sparkling snow fields of the Plateau de Sault. You wouldn't believe these fields are a sea of purple lavender in the summer but the are just as beautiful in their winter blanket.
Mont Ventoux is one of our favourite excursions. The summit is closed in winter so we are looking forward to the thaw when we can drive to the top again for the superb views right across the southern Alps.
