Sault, Provence, France

Sault is a town with interesting location among rocks, forests and lavender fields, on top of a mountain overlooking the Nesque Valley, about 40 km east of Carpentras and 20 km north-west of Simiane-la-Rotonde. This area of Provence is famous for its nougat and lavender honey. You can also take interesting trips to the area of Mont Ventoux as well as Lure and Baronnies mountain ranges.

Parking in Sault

In the village you can stop at a fairly large parking lot (Place des Aires) located near the old town (P1; GPS: 44.092572, 5.408947). If you want you can also try to leave your car on the road or in smaller parking lots (for example, P2; GPS: 44.092714, 5.410594).

Touring the town

We head towards the old town. Because the area is known for its lavender and nougat, on market days you will see here many stands with local products. And if you are here just on 14th or 15th August, you will take part in interesting lavender festival, because the town is considered as the local capital of this plant. In the old town you can visit the church of Notre-Dame-de-la-Tour (A; GPS: 44.091447, 5.408461) with a nice fountain located in front of it. The Municipal Museum (B; GPS: 44.091125, 5.408502) contains results of local archaeological excavations, elements of natural history and a collection of weapons. Interesting is also the tower of old Agoult castle converted into a residential house (C; GPS: 44.091502, 5.407650).
