The Essential
Clinging to the edge of its rock, Venasque dominates the Nesque valley. But its charm is not confined to one site. Thanks to the remarkable architectural unity of its little squares with fountains and charming residences, it deserves its classification among "the most beautiful villages in France". If you are lookng for calm and serenity, you can simply stroll around the village streets, among the workshops of artists and craftsmen, the attractively restored houses and the baptistry, one of France's oldest religious buildings.
