Aurel

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vaucluse

Built on a spur, the best way to approach this beautiful village in all its glory is to take the road from Sault.

Winding, narrow and lined with beautiful ornate frames stone houses, the village streets lead you to the castle which has only survived a square tower and walls pierced with loopholes. It is not surprising that such a framework has attracted painters and Pierre René Seyssaud Ambrogiani inspired by this unique light.
