Nestling at the foot of a hill amid a vineyard landscape, Séguret is a typical Provence village reminiscent of the nativity scenes for which it makes figurines. You are sure to fall in love with Its atmosphere and character. As you wander the cobbled streets, pause to breathe in the scents of the climbing roses that adorn the houses. On Rue des Poternes, the old houses are a charming sight.

In Séguret, there are still visible traces of the medieval period, as shown by the Reynier gate, a vestige of the fortifications, and the Huguenots gate, which still has its door with two iron and wood leaves. As you continue your visit, you will see the picturesque washhouse and the beautiful Mascarons fountain, a listed Historic Monument, the Romanesque church dating from the 10th-12th centuries and the old 17th-century belfry, whose clock has just one hand.

From the orientation table on Place de l'église, you can gaze upon the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Alpilles and the Cévennes. Then follow the little path to the heights of the village, where you will find the feudal castle ruins, and take in the panoramic view stretching out before you…
