Modѐne Village Vaucluse
Looking across vineyards to the pretty picturesque
hill-top village of Crillon-le-Brave
and in the far distance Mont Ventoux
commonly know as "The Giant of Provence"
made legendary as one of the most gruelling climbs in the Tour- De- France.
In 1967 British cyclist Tom Simpson sadly died here from heat exhaustion
whilst competing in the event and there is now a memorial
to him near the summit
