Fontaine de Vaucluse
It is at Fontaine de Vaucluse that the amazing source of the Sorgueriver gushes out, coming straight from Mont Ventoux and the Monts de Vaucluse. At the foot of a 230-metre cliff, the limpid waters of the Sorgue at Fontaine de Vaucluse are home to all sorts of activities: fishing, canoeing-kayaking…
The ecomuseum at the swallow-hole and the paper mill bear witness to the local activities linked to the spring, notably paper production which enabled Fontaine de Vaucluse to prosper up until the middle of the last century.
In addition, the many inns and restaurants make Fontaine de Vaucluse an essential gourmet stop-off point in the region.
