Between the Durance river and Mount Sainte-Victoire, Jouques is peacefully situated at the intersection of four Departments. Built at the summit of a fragrant hill-side, with its small valleys and wooded massifs, Jouques is not visible until you have rounded almost the last corner on the road leading to the village.
