We made the cycle ascent of Mont Ventoux from Bedoin then for a change of scenery we decided to come down via Sault and then the Gorges Nesque back to Bedoin. Must have run for 12 miles down hill what a ride. Must admit I...More

We drove the route up alongside the Gorges and stopped a number of times to appreciate the scenery. In late May the hillsides were green and full of wildflowers, and the air full of the scent of wild thyme. The promise of lavender in the...More

The road is narrow, with almost no shoulder, but it is wide enough for two cars to pass easily. Some, however, pass faster than others. We were there in September, so there were still a lot of bicyclists vying for road space. The views are...More

Rode through this gorge as part of a cycle sportive. Wow. What an amazing place. Don't go in a car, it's a waste of time. Ride through it. A hot sunny Sunday, no traffic, no noise. Just me and 15 miles of downhill roads. Perfection.

The vistas of the Gorges de la Nesque are stunning - deep ravines, dramatic cliffs and lush greenery. Be warned that although the D942 is a road loved by cyclists, it is a white knuckle, 22km drive in the car. The road is very narrow...More

Modest climbs and splendid views - highly recommended. Roadways are smooth, minimal auto traffic, several good restaurants, and water stops...neat tunnels, too.

With a grade of no more than 5% and very little of that, this ride is a cake walk and always fun. We ascended the D5, which by itself was pretty cool, had lunch at a gourmet stop in Monieux, and descended the Gorge. Had...More

Started by going over the Mont Ventoux then through the Gorges de la Nesque. In Morgan cabriolet so thrilling drive. Great too for bikers or cyclists.

A beautiful route, not many cars and no trucks because the tunnels engraved in the rocks does not allow big trucks. Awesome senic views. I bike this route every year, starting from Villes Les Auzon over Sault to the Mont Ventoux. In total 110 km,...More

The route "Gorges de la Nesque" runs from Villes-sur-Auzon to Monieux. You can follow the D942 in Villes-sur-Auzon. We took our car as we did not have that much time. It is a nice road, predominantly occupied by cyclists. We stopped a few times to...More

Hi, Well we were staying at Bedoin prior to cycling Ventoux but didn't want to come back the same way. At Chalet Reynard 6 K from the top, the three routes up Ventoux meet, so we took the Sault route down for maybe 15k... More
