From Flassan, it's a quiet and easy road with a nice view on the Mont Ventoux, before you reach the forest. The second climb starts 4 km outside Sault and takes 11,7 km with the first 7,7 km as the most difficult ones. This is the nicest side. The climb from Villes-sur-Auzon is not very nice since the road is large and more crowdy.
