A village in the Alps of Haute-Provence, Valensole is located at the gateway to the plain that bears its name. It’s a place that boasts centuries of history, visible in its network of tiny streets: a 13th century church, fountains and wash-houses, gates and doorknockers, ramparts are just some of the jewels in this crown.
Local authority policy means that residents enjoy a high quality of life, within a healthy environment that promotes sustainable development and good living conditions, yet preserves the town's superb architectural heritage.
