Between Alpilles and Durance, nestles at the foot of the hill and its feudal towers, Châteaurenard, the "city gardening.

A story in capital letters carved in the rock at the castle of the 12th and 15th centuries, the ancient fortress of the Counts of Provence, or drawn into the grooves of the landscape gardener. A story also magnified by authentic traditional festivals which are celebrated as the carts boughs from the past that now forgotten trades through a day in the old way. " Over thirty holidays and are identified only on summer! Midway between Saint-Rémy and Avignon, Châteaurenard is close to tourist sites but has kept all the friendliness and peacefulness of a small Provencal town. Also, Châteaurenard is it a privileged holiday resort in the heart of Provence.
