Blauvac, small provençal village at the foot of the Mont Ventoux
Blauvac is a charming little Provencal village dominating from the top of a hill a vast expanse of vineyards and fields of cherry trees. By climbing the streets of the village we come across beautiful views of the nature of the Mont Ventoux biosphere reserve of which it is a part.
Visitors to Blauvac will enjoy the uphill walk along its streets to discover the breathtaking view awaiting at the top. If you venture to the far end of the village, you will stumble across the modest medieval stone château from the 13th century, with its rounded turrets, now serving as a private residence.

Notre-Dame des Neiges
This little chapel, built on the site of a Celtic-Ligurian oppidum (fortified town), bears witness to a long-standing human presence, with the remains of a Paleochristian church.
To fill antiques fairs of the 18th century, archaeological excavations were commissioned on the site, revealing many objects such as fragments of pottery, lamps and incineration tombs, signs of a past presence.
