Apart from the obvious charm of the village thanks to the "Clos St Joseph", you will be able to appreciate the village wine and vineyard.


These are the only vine fields in the departement to be awarded the "appellation d'origine contrôlée" (A.O.C.) "Côtes de Provence" ...


Villars is extremely proud! Wine tasting is therefore obligatory, especially if it is accompanied by some of the wonderful specialities from the area...
