village of villedieu

6 km from Vaison-la-Romaine

Altitude: 280 m
Population: 538

A village set on a small hill in rolling countryside composed of vineyards, olive trees and pine woods. Looking out over the Aygues valley, close to the Drôme Provençale. This small medieval village was originally a Templar commandery, with a castle and its tower. The oldest remnants discovered so far date the first settlement back to the Palaeolithic age: flint tools and weapons excavated on the hill of La Gardette (325 m above sea level), where the statue of Notre-Dame-de-Saint-Claude was erected in 1936.
