Villecroze-les-Grottes

Villecroze is an authentic Provencal village: it has preserved its medieval character with its arcades and narrow streets. A must-see: the sun-drenched tufa cliff, its beautiful Tuscan garden and the troglodytic caves.

A Tuscan garden and a grotto-come-castle! A "Village of Character", Villecroze's medieval origins are still reflected in its succession of arcades, narrow lanes, fountains and ancient church. To the north of the village stands a sun-drenched tuff cliff overlooking the Tuscan garden at its feet. The cliff harbours a grotto, formerly used to shelter the village inhabitants. In the 16th century, the Seigneur de Villecroze converted the grotto into an invincible hideout and decorated its frontage in Renaissance style.

The troglodytic caves of Villecroze

Villecroze’s troglodytic caves are cozily settled in the heart of a sunny cliff made of tufa. They successively belonged to Benedictine monks, to the local Lord (who fortified it) and eventually to the Municipality.

Caves's garden

The municipal park of Villecroze extends over two hectares at the foot of the limestone hills in which were built troglodyte caves. It contains many rare species and other more common (trees, shrubs, plants) to our region.
