Saint Hippolyte le Graveyron - Vineyards

After leaving Carpentras, you'll follow the pleasant D938 which gives some lovely views of the countryside around the Dentelles de Montmirail and Mont Ventoux.

Then you'll take the little D21 on your left, lined with vine fields, until you arrive at Saint Hippolyte le Graveyron.

You'll know you've arrived when you see the mairie and the church... but nothing else... believe it or not you're in the middle of the village !

Saint Hippolyte le Graveyron - Church


Don't search for narrow houses built right up against each other, or a village square with its café, fountains and games of pétanque... The houses in St Hippolyte are scattered throughout the municipality, without any real village centre.

So enjoy the peace and quiet... and if you're looking for activities, they're not far away. You're only 10 km from Carpentras and 35 km from Avignon 35 km! The village was detached from Caromb during the Revolution, and is one of the few not to be grouped or have any fortifications.


Saint Hippolyte le Graveyron - Church

The village is situated on a plain just below the hill of Graveyron. You can explore this hill thanks to three footpaths laid out by the municipality.

If you like walking, take one of these paths to get to the orientation table, and to lose yourself for a while in the remarkable ancestral olive groves.
