Flassan, tiny village at the foot of Mont Ventoux
La Place de la Mairie (Town Hall Square)
In the heart of the village, the central square is the perfect place to take a few photos, with its former oil mill-turned-town hall.
The heart of the village, at times bustling, at others deserted, with its fountain and lavoir (wash house) where woman would come to wash their laundry in the shade of its trees, the square has a nativity-scene quality.
Chez Hélène, the local shop
This small local shop is the village’s main business and somewhere you’ll find everything you might need: general convenience store, fresh bread, petrol, envelopes, the list goes on...
If you have already devoured your holiday reading, you can exchange it with another book at the local “little library” housed here.
Opening times: from Monday to Saturday: 07:30-12:30/17:00-19:00, Sunday: 07:30 to 12:30
