Ranked "One of the Most Beautiful Villages in France"


Located in the heart of the Côtes du Rhône vineyards, perched atop the cliff overlooking the entrance to the Ardèche river canyons, Aiguèze is a peaceful little village whose origins lie in medieval times. Ranked as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, Aiguèze charms visitors with its beautiful harmony, its fortifications and the vestiges of its fortress.
A lovely shady square lies in the centre of the village, next to the church with a Renaissance portal. Narrow cobblestone streets, some of them with vaulted passageways, are lined with beautiful old homes.
The watch-walk lies at the base of the fortress rock and provides magnificent views over the Ardèche river canyons and the cultivated plains of the Rhone valley, with the silhouette of Mont Ventoux rising in the far-off distance.

Be sure to see:
- The homes which testify to the history of the village. The ground floor is often medieval with Romanesque vaults, and other parts of the home are Renaissance with mullion windows.
- The parish church is a listed Historical Monument. It is Romanesque with a Renaissance portal. The restored bell tower is Gothic and there are neo-Gothic frescoes inside the church.
- Saint Roch fountain, located at the end of the Jeu de Paume square is named after the patron saint of the village.
- The watchman’s walk goes in front of the old château (which is privately owned), the Saracen tower and the Dungeon. Magnificent panoramic views over the Ardeche river valley and Mont Ventoux.
