“Its like the moon at the top!”
Review of Mont Ventoux

Mont Ventoux
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Want to cycle up it one day, but in the meantime we ascended in the car. Met some New Zealanders at the summit, they were cycling the Tour de France route a few days in advance of the race.
There's a shop and refreshments available at the summit. The mountain rises abruptly above the lavender fields and vineyards below- truly awesome

Unbelievable place. Atmospheric, other-worldly landscape and a bike ride to beat most others i've tried. Great cafe at the top serving the kind of stooge you need when you are a few hundred calories down on how you started the day!!

Even when the summit is still closed due to heavy snow, this wonderful mountain road is well worth the trip. Stunning vistas.

We were in Provence for a long weekend, so as we had fine weather we decided to climb the Mont Ventoux... by car.
I used to watch the Tour de France when I was a kid and there are icons like the Ventoux, the Tourmalet, l'Alpe d'Huez... that I've climbed by car.
The road was open til the Mt. Serein ski resort, commanding stunning views of the Alps and the Provence area.
Can't wait to come back in summer for the summit.

We drove up to see the snow on the top. It was gorgeous. We were able to drive up with normal tyres on our car as the main road was clear up to 4 kms from the top, from where it is closed to road traffic. Stunning views from the top as it was a clear day. I can't wait to go up again when it snows more.
