The village

Ansouis is a village in the massif du Luberon which has known how to save its roots, especially concerning its heritage. Indeed, the Castle which is on the top of the village and which belonged to the Sabran family is beautiful. Moreover, we can see many houses here from the 15th to 17th century, and also the St Martin church. The village is partially downwind from the mistral. All these assets lead to the fact that Ansouis is among the most beautiful villages of France.
