Bedoin - The village

Bedoin is a lovely little agricultural village of the Mont Ventoux region. Spread out over a large area, it comprises several hamlets all of which are blessed with that Mediterranean climate of sun nearly every day of the year. A good wine (AOC) is produced here along with asparagus and various fruits.

Bedoin - Roofs

Bedoin also can boast of possessing one of the biggest (6,300h.) and most interesting communal forests of France. There are 1,200 different species of vegetation to study and is without doubt the most varied forest in this whole area.

Bedoin - Small square

Many hikes are offered for those who wish to admire (and respect ) this well protected fauna and flora. An unforgettable outing consists of watching the sun rise over the Mont Ventoux. The Tourist Office will provide you with a brochure describing this excursion along with other half day trips.

Bedoin - Terrace

While walking along the Ventoux and its plains you may very well run into one of the last three shepherds of Bedoin tending the sheep with his dog. Perhaps he'll tell you a story of old shepherds and wolves and lambs astray!
