M. Gravier (2002). Paysans et paysages de l’Arc Comtadin, [Land-owners and landscapes of the Comtadin Arc], Aix en Provence, Edisud/CME.
Behind the term "Arc Comtadin" lies the magnificent landscape amphitheatre located between the south slope of the Ventoux Mountain, the Dentelles of Montmirail and the Vaucluse hills.
This book was born from the conviction that this exceptional landscape heritage we have inherited is in danger and that we are destroying it. It is not merely merchandise or a tourist activity but a living space of essential cultural value for all of us. The author, Mireille Gravier, has written a detailed study of the evolution of the landscape of the Comtadin Arc over a century, with the aim of exposing the reasons for its degradation and explaining the activities of those who refuse to accept it. The book ends with proposals for walks aimed at getting to know the landscape.
M. Gravier, (2006). Paysans et Paysages du Mont Ventoux, [Landowners and landscapes of the Ventoux], Brantes, Éditions du Toulourenc.The Ventoux landscapes that we can observe today are the reflection of the evolving relationship between humankind and the mountain. It has shifted from a working relationship toward a leisure-based one, but it is a relationship that is always lived out with passion.
The aim is to allow future generations to better understand the interaction between humankind and our surroundings, and to reflect on the meaning and importance of our territory.
The CME team wants to help you get to know the Ventoux mountain (sometimes called the “Giant of Provence”) through the testimonies of local people. We also propose a number of walks to help you discover the mountain.
Centre Méditerranéen de l’Environnement / CPIE des Pays du Vaucluse (2007). A la rencontre de Jean Henri Fabre, [Meeting with Jean Henri Fabre], Arceaux, Les Éditions du Toulourenc.
This book, which makes use of teaching illustrations, has a double aim. The first is to make known the life of this famous nature specialist who was born in the Aveyron and spent a large part of his life in the Vaucluse. The second use of the book is to propose activities around the discovery of the environment for a young public. Making a sun-dial, observing insects, measuring the height of a tree, enjoying a nature walk in the Ventoux, etc.
