The origin of the name Mont Ventoux is said to stem from ‘windy mountain’ in French. They are not wrong because if you have bad luck, the wind will make the climb up pretty hard. The reward you will find on the top, however, is worth every drop of sweat.
You can start the climb from Bédoin, Malaucène or Sault. Although Mont Ventoux is a known resort amongst athletes, the top is accessible by car as well so everyone can reach the top.
