Located on the very edge of the "department" next to the Drome is Les Omergues, a very small unpretentious farming village. It has two streets lined with simple houses with dash finish, plus some chicken runs and vegetable gardens and occasionally a terrace with Virginia creeper. It is cooled by the Jabron, which here is quite small, and the view of Mont Ventoux is breathtaking. This village's heritage is nature itself. Les Omergues nestles in the shade of large lime trees, chestnut and cypress trees and weeping willows.
