Departement of the Alpes de Haute Provence - Pop.: 120 inh.
At Sisteron take the D946 heading for Noyers sur Jabron for 30 km.
Located on the very edge of the "département" next to the Drôme is Les Omergues, a very small unpretentious farming village.
It has two streets lined with simple houses with dash finish, plus some chicken runs and vegetable gardens and occasionally a terrace with Virginia creeper.
It is cooled by the Jabron, which here is quite small, and the view of Mont Ventoux is breathtaking. This village's heritage is nature itself.
If you look hard you will find one or two beautiful Provencal farmhouses and an old picturesque stonework barn.
Les Omergues nestles in the shade of large lime trees, chestnut and cypress trees and weeping willows.
It is a perfect site for cycling, bicycle touring or mountain biking, and moreover it is located on the Provence Cycling Championship circuit.
Les Omergues is the ideal site for cycling enthusiasts, who will really be in their element here!
