Seguret, medieval village overlooking the vineyard

Seguret is located in the northern part of the Vaucluse, north of the Dentelles de Montmirail and west of Mont Ventoux. The village lies at the foot of a hill topped by the ruins of its feudal chateau.

Seguret is one of the official "most beautiful villages in France", and thoroughly deserves this distinction.

Seguret, wash-house

As soon as you arrive, you will be bowled over by the charm of this village, with its typical Provencal atmospherer and medieval character.

You will literally find yourself in the setting for a crib, a decor naturally formed by the houses of the village.

Seguret, calade street
Your stroll through the streets of the village, between the grey steeply sloping lanes and noble facades, will enable you to admire historical treasures at each step: the Reynier gate, the 14th century belfry with its single needle, the beautiful 10th century Saint-Denis church, the Rue des Poternes lined with ancient houses, the Huguenots' gate, which still has its two ironbound wooden shutters, etc., etc. It's a very long list.

Seguret, orientation table

From the orientation table in the church square, and the Cornice of the ramparts, under the Barri, you will have a very broad view of the landscape surrounding the village; in particular its neighbour Sablet , which stands out in the middle of the plain.

Seguret, Cotes du Rhone vineyards

Seguret is not just a fine village, it also has land and people who produce an excellent "appellation controlee" wine: Cotes du Rhone Seguret.

They are successfully continuing a wine-making tradition dating back several centuries. .

Seguret, street
This vineyard covering 8 km² changed hands and owners many times throughout history, until the 12th century. The village wine-makers then decided to take control of their destiny and made Seguret a free district so that they could manage their own affairs.

You can't visit Séguret without paying a visit to the Roaix-Seguret wine cellar (co-operative) or one of the village's vineyards !

Seguret, vaulted passageway

This listed picturesque site, full of charm, attracts artists and visitors from all over the world, who sometimes become permanent residents.

Everything here is beautiful, everthing is well maintained, everthing has been tastefully restored... the only down side (the ransom of success) is the crowds of visitors in the tourist season...
