La Roque sur Cèze, village perché


Nestled in the heart of Provence in the Gard, the charming perched village of La Roque sur Cèze, ranked as one of Most Beautiful Villages in France, has harmonious architectural unity with steep cobblestone streets and homes built of light stone.
The vestiges of the château, the Romanesque chapel and the medieval bridge which spans the River Cèze stand in mute testimony to a rich past.
Not far is the site of the Sautadet waterfalls, known as the Cascades du Sautadet. Access is regulated to this magnificent site with lots of “devils cauldrons”.

Be sure to see:
- The château (private), which dates from the 12th century; 2 small round towers flanking the front façade can still be seen.
- The Romanesque chapel (private) adjoining the château and also from the 12th century, overlooks the valley of the River Cèze.
- "Charles Martel" bridge is a Romanesque bridge which is a registered Historical Monument. Has often been repaired due to flood waters from the Cèze and traffic.
- The Cascades du Sautadet, downstream of the bridge, is a natural site which has been protected since 1993. The Cèze has carved out canyons and cavities which have eventually merged together, forming crevices in which the river gushes. These “devils’ cauldrons” are cylindrical holes carved into the rock by the whirlpool motion of spinning pebbles and rocks.
This can be a very dangerous site and access is regulated. Swimming is forbidden.
