Top Restaurant Recommendations in Malaucène? As a Local

Le Prieuré La Madelène Bed and Breakfast (B&B) is the site of a former 12th-century Benedictine monastery nestled just outside the village of Malaucène at the foot of Mont Ventoux. This B&B with five (5) guestrooms and a private cottage (gîte) is a few minutes from Vaison La Romaine. Surrounded by unspoiled villages, the ancient priory is an excellent base for holidays and exploring the Vaucluse and Drôme Provencal.
