What makes this village special?

Its status as a pontifical territory, which allowed it to remain autonomous for centuries, also left its architecture with a little air of Italy and its inhabitants the pride of belonging to this beautiful region; pride that they are always ready to share with their passing guests. Food lovers will enjoy strolling through the colorful stalls of the Provencal market in Bedoin on Monday morning and you can also visit the vineyards that produce the famous Côtes du Ventoux AOC. Orchards that stretch for hundreds of acres in the nearby hills offer fresh fruits like cherries, apricots, plums, figs and of course olives. Visitors come from all over the world to climb the “Giant of Provence” or to cycle there. Mont Ventoux is one of the symbols of Provence, with its clearly identifiable and famous Hertzian station which can be seen for hundreds of kilometers around. It is classified as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO and offers hiking and biking tours that will satisfy even the most demanding. Bédoin is also a city of art. It is home to many artists' and craftsmen's workshops. During your stay in Bédoin, do not miss: The church of Saint-Pierre, which was partially destroyed during the revolution, and which dominates the city.
