Flassan is situated approximately 30 miles north-east of Avignon. It is 650 miles from Calais and approximately 1 hr 30 mins from Marseille and Nimes airports.
The village sits at the foot of Mont Ventoux with stunning views of the mountain and surrounding vineyards, cherry orchards and olive groves. the area is known for its clean, clear air and blue skies making it perfect for painters and photographers (and stargazers!) and of course, keen cyclists.
Flassan is a beautiful ochre village with a small square, fountain and lavoir.
There is a well-stocked grocery shop in the village, (which doubles as a depot de pain for your morning croissants) and there is a good selection of restaurants and shops and a market with local produce and crafts (Mondays) in nearby Bedoin (4 miles) and Villes-sur-Auzon (3 miles).
