If you happen to be in the area and need a pitstop for breakfast, lunch or coffee, it is certainly a beautiful stop with the river going through the heart of the town.

Nice brook and waterfalls. The water had a lot of emerald green plants in it. Cliffs around it are full of holes/caves.

The source of the Sorgue is as interesting as any deep hole. It is about a 1 k walk with shops or restaurants on both sides. The river, indeed, is beautiful but there are too many people.

A gentle stroll with a modest incline as you follow the river to its source. Plenty of ice cream shops and touristy tutt to buy along the way. It takes just a few moments to get to the top....but there is nothing to see unless...More

Visiting this site should take you about an hour. There are a lot of people. A variety of restaurants available. It feels somewhat touristy. About a 400 meter walk from the entrance to the source. Plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the beautiful clear...More

There's parking available in the village, costed 4 EUR. The walk to the source is like 15 minutes alongside the river. The first like 400m is one icecream store after the other, so the description touristic is an understatement. Too bad the village decided to...More

Beautiful village, with a pleasant walk along the banks of the clearest greenest water to the source of the river. Plentiful ice cream stalls on the way back. Best part was putting our feet in the freezing water on a hot July day!
