Presentation

Welcome to Montbrun les Bains and its lovely surroundings. This is one of the prettiest villages in France, with open gates and an open heart. Montbrun is also a thriving spa resort that has expanded to offer new services and care treatments.
A series of walks takes you to the essence of Provençal Drôme among lavender fields whose fragrance will scent your summer nights. It's a land of light and perfume to delight the senses. Explore the Upper Provence where celebrated author Jean Giono lived, a few kilometres from Montbrun, high on the Plateau d'Albion. You'll travel on foot through the Baronnies in unspoilt and quite remarkable natural surroundings.
And wherever you walk, the Giant of Provence will watch over you. If the fancy takes you, you could always go up and greet him at the summit...

Note: This tour requires to have a car to join the various hikes.

    This circuit crosses some wild, practically uninhabited countryside. The narrow path over the Col de la Bohémienne brings you to the heart of the Baronnies Provençales. The route is very diverse, going through a valley bottom, then snaking along the mountainside through patches of marl before following a long ridge. Two thirds of the itinerary are at more than 1000m. The fine viewpoints over the area are crowned by that from the peak Le Chomatton, culminating at an altitude of 1136 metres.
    Along the way you may like to have a closer look at the Château d'Aulan which proudly guards the gorges of Toulourenc and the village of Poët-en-Percip.
