The Source of Groseau

Not far from your cottage is the Groseau source, a true oasis in the region. Meet at the exit of Malaucène, on the road which leads to Ventoux. In the past, the source would supply Vaison-la-Romaine via an aqueduct. It is an ideal place to take a relaxing stroll, or spend a refreshing moment when the sunny days arrive in Provence. The Groseau site is an ideal place for a climbing session, against its cliffs! You can also eat there and admire the fountain and the wash house!
