Balazuc - Ardeche, France


Perched on a cliff overlooking the Ardèche, the old fortress belonging to the "Lords of Balazuc" has kept many signs of its medieval past : a maze of winding streets and arched passageways have always been part of the village scenery along with the castle, the fortified Romanesque church and the outer gates. The old village towers River Ardèche. Balazuc classified as one of the “Hundred most Beautiful Villages in France” has a southern atmosphere, a village of dressed stone bathed in golden sunlight, a maze of tiny, winding alleyways, of stone staircases, paved ramps, and shady arcades,… The remains of the town walls lead us to the castle which was built in the 13th C. The square in front of the ancient church has retained its charm of yesteryear, bounded by old, medieval shop fronts and houses with mullion windows.
