The heart of the northern Vaucluse has been for centuries the charming market town of Vaison-la-Romaine, a luxurious patrician resort in Roman times whose ruins and museums provide the earliest evidence of a fine provençal lifestyle. The beautiful landscapes around Vaison, dominated by the mighty bulk of Mont Ventoux and the filigree limestone formations of the Dentelles de Montmirail, are dotted with small delightful villages, each with its unique charm and attraction. Séguret, one of the several  ‘Plus Beaux Villages de France’ in the area, is overlooked by the ruins of its feudal château, and nearby former Knights Templar commanderie Roaix produces a fine Côtes-de-Rhône Villages. Malaucène boasts remnants from Roman times, as well as Gallic and medieval traces. Sablet is overlooked by its 12th century Eglise-St-Nazaire and its 14th century ramparts, and Puyméras, just northeast of Vaison, offers lovely views over lavender fields from the ruined château at the top of the village.
