Village located at the foot of the southern slope of the Lure mountain, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Châteauneuf-Val-Saint-Donat takes place at about thirty kilometers from Digne-les-Bains, on the edges of the former royal road that used to go from Apt to Embrun. It is located not far from Sisteron, a few kilometers from the Durance and Château-Arnoux, and near the Luberon Regional Natural Park.
Set amidst fields of wheat, olive and lavender, the town alternates between wooded landscapes and green expanses, offering an idyllic setting for a holiday. Formerly territory of the Sogiontiques, it develops quietly over the centuries and the vagaries of history, illustrating during the Second World War with the formation of a maquis. Long focused on agriculture, the city of Châteauneuf-Val-Saint-Donat now has four AOCs including one for the lavender essential oil of Haute-Provence and the banon, and nine PGIs, especially for the small spelled, the honey of Provence or the lamb of Sisteron.
