The quiet village of Joucas is set on a hill surrounded by tranquil countryside and farmland. Joucas remains off the main tourist trail, and offers a fantastic, traditional atmosphere – a great place to really get away from it all. There are picturesque narrow streets to stroll around, as well as beautiful architecture amid the old stone houses. There is also a church that houses an interesting museum of Italian painting. All around the village you will find wonderful Provençal countryside where you can enjoy relaxing walks in the great outdoors.
You'll discover a different side to your destination when you venture further afield.
