Saint-Roman de Malegarde is a peaceful and charming little provincial village at the side of a hill and situated at the North of the department Vaucluse, 23 km to the North-East of Orange and dozing between Bollène and Vaison.
The old village is built on top of the hill, where the streets are steep and narrow. The foot of the village has recently been renewed with new buildings such as the school and the mairie. In the surrounding area you can enjoy walking through the beautiful Provence countryside, the promenade botanique and discover the beautiful valley of the Aygues, from Nyons to Orange. Or make an excursion around the village and admire the landscape at the foothills of the Alps and the Ardèche.

A visit to the old village of Saint-Roman the Malegarde is certainly worth it. While approaching the centre, the lanes become narrower and steeper. Don't miss the parish church in the centre of the village. The church dates from the XIIIe century. Its façade is decorated with an 18th century sundial and a Maltese cross.
At the highest point of the village you will find the remains of its ancient 12th century castle. Only three towers remain. The middle one is a troglodyte part of the former fortress.

Only a few hundred people live in the village during the entire year. Most of the inhabitants are wine-growers, who entirely devote themselves to the wine, worldwide known under the name `Côtes du Rhône´.
To visit:
The ruins of the castle.
The parish church of the XIIIe century.
The narrow, steep lanes.

Leisure activities:
The festivals of the 'Quatorze Juillet' and of the first weekend of august, are the occasions for experiencing their typical 'concours the boules'. During the nights you can enjoy the delicious meals on their typical provincial squares, accompanied by an orchestra.
