    Let yourself be surprised by Montfaucon, a small town nestled in a meander of the Rhône, on the right bank of this majestic river. Dominated by a feudal fortified castle unique in France (private), this peaceful, friendly community cultivates its rural identity. Montfaucon's patrimony reflects its close, enduring relationship with the Rhône. Take a walk to the chapel and priory dedicated to the river's bargemen, and climb up to the promontory on the hill of Saint-Maur offering marvellous panoramas of Provence Occitane and the Vaucluse. Montfaucon is proud to be one of the nine original communities of the Côte du Rhône appellation. Come and taste its wines, particularly the three colours of the celebrated Lirac vintage. And the hospitality of the villagers is well-renowned.
