Where is the workshop held?

 

The workshop will be held on private land, in a charming old farmhouse situated next to a beautiful forest, just outside the magical medieval village of Sault. Sault is famous for its lavender fields and proximity to the legendary Mont Ventoux.

 

Some words on Sault:

 

"Sault is an exceptionally attractive village, even if just to sit quietly on a cafe terrace for a while, both because of the historical centre and the beauty of the surrounding landscapes, a visit is highly recommended.

Among the streets and squares in the centre of Sault, there are some fine 16th century stone houses to admire, often with decorative and ornate doors and windows and first floor balconies."

 

"The location of Sault to the east of Mont Ventoux, a popular Tour de France cycling challenge, make it a popular destination with cyclists. It is also an important centre of the Provence lavender industry, and a centre for those wishing to see the magnificent lavender fields in flower - it is part of the popular route de la Lavande which passes through several towns and villages in the lavender growing region.

 

Sault is also an excellent base for exploring the region, with numerous small villages waiting to be discovered within a 20-kilometre radius. Among those, we have visited our favourites include Simiane la Rotonde, the little villages of Reilhanette, Aurel and Brantes, and the thermal station at Montbrun-les-Bains.

 

Scenic destinations close to Sault include the Gorges de la Nesque and the Montagne de Lure. There is an attractive pathway that follows below the cliffs in the Gorges de la Nesque, while the Montagne de Lure is a barren mountain area which is also home to a small ski station."
