A hillside village facing Mont Ventoux in
Drôme Provençale, Montbrun-les-Bains is famed
for its springs and revitalising health spas. The narrow stone houses that make up the village were built so close together that
there was little space inside – as a result, many of them extend upwards dramatically. Famed for its lavender, the area around
Montbrun offers a rich network of walking trails.
What to see and visit: the medieval village and its cobbled streets; the thirteenth-century belfry; the twelfth-century castle; the fourteenth-century castle, formerly the home of Dupuy-Montbrun family.
Recommended activities: spas, walking, horse riding, mountain biking, hang gliding, canyoning, rock climbing.
