Recommendation for 2 easy to reach summits on the way to the South of France

If you take the A7 (Autoroute du soleil) on your way to the south of France, you could take a break at an easy-to-reach summit.

The summit of La Montagne F/CR-257 can be easily reached from Savasse (just north of Montélimar). At the top, it has a transmitter and an orientation board that can be used to determine the surrounding mountains.

A little further south is Bollène. Here, the Bois Redon F/CR-263 is easy to reach. From the car park at the top it is only a few 100m walk and a few metres in altitude to the summit.

I was only active for a short time, so the diversions took me at most 1 to 1.5 hours.

Thanks for the hint!

Puy-de-Dome F/MC-027 is a nice summit near Clermont-Ferrand.

Also Mont Ventoux, F/CR-007, a very drivable 6-pointer. Fabulous views, very popular with cyclists. Vaison la Romaine, east of Orange, perhaps the nearest big town (also worth a visit.)
