Surrounded by a renowned vineyard, Rousset-les-Vignes is a picturesque little village in Provençale Drôme. It used to be fortified and has kept a few buildings from the medieval period clustered around a peaceful small square. Accessible via a maze of typical narrow streets, these buildings are part of a remarkable architectural heritage. First there's the 12th-century fortified church, of Romanesque origin, which has a round tower and a bell-gable with three bays. Next is the 10th-century Clunisian priory, adorned with a Renaissance façade. Lastly, the feudal castle dates back to the 14th and 15th centuries.
Take the time to stroll around the village and soak up the peaceful atmosphere that reigns in Rousset-les-Vignes. You can see other traces of its past here and there, the old washhouse and vaulted passages in particular.
If you continue your tour as far as the little belvedere located at the top of the village, you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the landscape of vines and cypress trees, with Mount Ventoux in the background!
