Lamotte du Rhone, church

Located in the North of the Vaucluse, La Motte du Rhône lies at the boundary of three departements.

You are in for a surprise if you think that Lamotte du Rhône is a typical Vauclusian village with their narrow winding streets and old stone houses grouped around the main square next to the town hall or church.

Lamotte du Rhone, square
When you arrive at the roundabout at the entrance to the village you'll find the sign indicating the center of the village. But where is it? You don't need to look any further, around a shady square with its fountain you'll find a number of modern houses, the post office and town hall.

Opposite, the primary school and village hall lie next to the ancient village church which has recently been magnificently restored to its former glory with a beautiful esplanade. A few scattered houses and two shops make up the rest of the village.
