'The village, La Roque-Sur-Cèze, is exactly what every movie, book, and tourist brochure suggests a Provencal village should be...'TripAdvisor - 2006
Dating from the middle ages, La Roque-Sur-Cèze is a small stone-built village nestled on the side of a wooded hill. From the Chateau at the top, narrow cobbled streets wind down through the village, in places revealing idyllic views over the rooftops of the valley below. La Roque is recognised by the French Government as one of the most beautiful villages in France and in 1958 was added to the inventory of French historic sites. Additionally the limestone Cascades of Sautadet were classified as a 'Zone Naturelle' in 1993. You can go riding nearby, kayaking, swimming, or fishing in the river, take a walk for some absolute peace, or just sit in the last light of the day on one of our terraces. A small restaurant a few moments away, ‘La Hulotte’, serves drinks and 'Cuisine Artisanale' which can be enjoyed on the terrace with one of the best views in the village.

La Roque is within easy reach of the Ardèche, Mont Ventoux, Avignon and the Palace du Pape, the Carthusian monastery of Chartreuse de Valbonne, the stunning Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard, the Roman amphitheatres of Nîmes and Orange (where operas and concerts are still performed), picturesque Uzès and its market, and the vineyards of Languedoc-Roussillon, Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Further afield are the historic cities of Arles and Aix en Provence

The village is well connected by car to major auto routes, the TGV and airports of Avignon and Nîmes, with direct trains from London to Avignon during the summer. Click on 'Getting Here' to the left for more information.
