When you arrive at the appropriately-named village of Rousset-les-Vignes you cannot help noticing that a well-known vine, planted on sloping stony ground grows all around the village.
But you will also be surprised to discover beautiful architecture, located around a peaceful little square where a fortified church stands, dating back to the 12th century.
Built from superb time-worn yellow ochre stone, and beautifully understated in style, it has a round tower and a bell-tower built into a wall, boasting three bells. Opposite stands a Priory with a Renaissance façade that will delight lovers of old buildings.
More energetic visitors who climb up to the small viewing point at the top of the village will have the good fortune to discover a magnificent view of a landscape of gentle valleys, vines and cypresses, dominated by Mont Ventoux.…
