Chateaudouble

Chateaudouble, a real eagle's nest teetering on the top of a cliff (130 metres high). This name which actually means 'double castle' comes from the fact that there are two castles here. One is at the top of the village, the other on the banks of the river Nartuby. Chateaudouble is a gem of Provence encased in greenery. To nature lovers it offers magnificent walks:- The canyons of Chateaudouble, The prehistoric caves, The Hamlet of Rebouillon, a green island bordered by the Nartuby on one side and the canal of the Reine Jeanne on the other. The village itself has a couple of restaurants, shop, historic chapel and shady terrace cafe with magnificent views over the gorge.
