Great fun for all ages, although you have to have a level of fitness and flexibility to negotiate the path, in some parts scrambling across boulders. There are ample spots to stop off for a break and perhaps some lunch. Many people brought picnics. Finding...More

We walked about 5km downstream from the bridge at Veaux and back again. Away from the fist 500m or so there are far less people and the whole trip was great fun. I've walked along many rivers, but this is the first time it has...More

Parked in field just before village of Veaux and entered river at bridge and headed upstream. Lovely cool water ankle deep up to knee deep in some places. Obviously very busy time of year and shallow water but still worth the walk. Did get a...More

If you want to visit a gorgeous place without being bored by others, this is the place to be in Provence! Great valley behind the Ventoux where you can cycle or hike in the nature (nearly) without seeing any one. The river is really great...More

We got into the stream at the bridge and walked/swam upstream through the Gorges, sometimes the water coming up to the chin. Came back to the starting point by way of the Grande Randonée itinerary (white/red markings), serious hiking.

Try this in late September when the summer hordes have departed. Free parking in field outside the hameau of Veaux. A gentle drop down to the river where you step into the crystal clear waters of the Toulerenc. Ankle-high for a good while, this deepens...More

On a bike ride we serendipitously passed through here. First we were surprised when we came upon a huge parking lot of cars out in the seeming middle of nowhere. Then we saw scores of people walking to and from the parking lot down to...More
