Seguret: one of the loveliest villages in France. (it even says so as you drive in)

Seguret is a very old village in the Vaucluse, and as you can tell by the size of the street in the first photo, it is pedestrian traffic only.  All of the streets are that size, except some of them have steps. The second photo from the top is the sign on the outside of the mayor's office, stating the weekly hours of the town office.  There are beautiful plantings all over town, as well as trickling fountains and pools.  It is up on the side of a very steep hillside with an expansive view from the top.  It was very hot yesterday when we visited, so we took refuge first in a church with it's origins in the 10th century, and then resorted to ice cream on the way back down.  It was Emmett's first ice cream experience.  He is a fan.  He was also a big fan of being able to run around freely without having to be constantly whisked out of the way of oncoming traffic by one of his parents.   It was a great place to go with a little one who needed to work off some extra energy!


  1. Wooww is a precious place, I wish it was more close to Barcelona. It's very nice!

  2. Wow! Absolutely beautiful. Glad Emmett likes the ice cream!
