Marvel at the highest mountain in Western Europe – Mont Blanc. You can also spot alluring retreat spaces around. From Vaucluse, that’s surrounded by lavender fields to Gréolières on fourteen acres of river-fronted garden. Immerse yourself in an en ecological retreat experience between the high mountains of the Haut Vallespir and the coast of the Mediterranean.
