The Village

 

Séguret, a small village in Provence lies among vineyards, cypresses, fig trees and olive groves in a culturally rich landscape that has always attracted artists. Known since Roman times, the village is situated at a height of 850 ft with sweeping views over the Rhône valley and is dominated by castle ruins dating back to the 12th century.

 

Two gates in the well preserved ramparts lead to the narrow village streets. Rows of Renaissance houses are grouped round a fountain and a clock tower and line the streets leading up to the simple Romanesque church.

 

The cities Vaison-la-Romaine, Orange and Avignon are close by, as is the 5140 ft high Mont Ventoux and picturesque villages with their colourful markets as well as numerous cultural monuments which are an ideal setting for inspiration and well worth a visit.
