    Sault, the birthplace of lavender, is situated on a rocky spur, dominating the eponymous valley. At the altitude of 766 meters, the municipality has the label Station Verte.
    Known worldwide for the cultivation of lavender, Sault, once protected by fortifications, bears the traces of an intense human activity from prehistoric times on.

    The town of Sault has been inhabited since prehistory. Sault formerly belonged to the Counts of Provence, and became part of Vaucluse in the late 18th century. Today, Sault is the kingdom of lavender - full of lavender fields which wave purple in June and July, and fill the air with the heady, delicious fragrance of lavender. Sault is also home to many fields of spelt, the ancient form of wheat grown by the Gauls and now highly appreciated for its many nutritional and taste values. Sault is also a health and holiday resort, where the air quality is excellent, providing many benefits. Sault is above all a small village built atop a rocky outcrop, with a 12th century church, museum, close to Mont Ventoux, the Nesque canyons and the Toulourenc canyons.
