Sainte Esteve Janson is a small rural village peacefully situated on the left bank of the Durance river, between Salon de Provence and Aix en Provence, on the border between the Bouches du Rhone and the Vaucluse.
The village does not have any particularly significant sites to see, although you can still visit the crumbling walls of the ancient Janson chateau.
