Uchaux is surrounded by wonderful landscapes of forests and vine fields. The commune spreads over a large area with dispersed residential areas concentrated in a number of hamlets.
There is no real village center but a number of "villages" in the forested valleys and hills.
When you visit Uchaux you'll find that the La Galle area is the busiest, with it's primary school and tennis courts, and a restaurant, bar tobacconist and general store which frame the village square and are the only services in the commune.
1,5 km from Galle, in the direction of Bollène finds the oldest hamlet in the commune le Castellas, with its chateau remains today largely overtaken by vegetation.
Leaving the commune in the direction of Rochegude, you'll see two, two meter high pillars which mark the boundary of the Vaucluse et la Drôme
Uchaux also has some beautiful forests which offer superb walks, a signed botanical nature trail where you can discover the different plant species of the area.
Depending on the season you can pick some wild mushrooms or blackberries and if you are especially lucky go home with one or two beautiful truffles.
