Crag features
A collection of buttresses in a secluded valley below the beautiful perched provencale village of Venasque, 10km from Carpentras.

Soft limestone with sandy beds, rounded breaks and pocketed walls.

For the guide book ask the Tourims office in Venasque. It is not compltete but cost only 1.5 euros.

Access notes
From Avignon, take the direction of Pernes-les-Fontaines [D28] and St-Didier [D28], then Beaucet. Do not enter Beaucet, go left towards Venasque.

¤ (Option 1) At the place called "Jouvenal" (in a turn) turn left on dirt road towards the sector "Saint-Pierre. Drive 10 minutes. Park in the dedicated car park. If it is complete, change of sector. It is imperative to park on the plateau. Go right through a little path to the edge of the plateau. Arrived to a terrace, there is a down climb on the line between large rocks, then a handrail. The rest of the way is obvious.

¤ (Option 2) Go through the place "Jouvenal" in the descent you can not miss the cliffs. Parking area to strictly respect. If there is no more space go back on the paving.

From Cavaillon, go to the Isle-sur-Sorgue [D928] and Pernes-les-Fontaines [D928] and finally Saint-Didier [D28]. The best is to take the direction of Beaucet before joining Venasque.

Or much better, arrive by Carpentras, directly below Venasque (D4). Then follow the Beaucet.
