Château de Flaugergues
This historic building is located three kilometers (one mile) east of the city center. Once a country house, this family property now finds itself and its surrounding parks and vineyards entirely swallowed by the city. The château, which dates from the 17th Century and its collection of 17th and 18th-century furnishings and art (including a large collection of optical instruments) can be visited in summer. Outside the house one can admire the gardens à la française as well as the château's own vineyards (Coteaux de la Mejanelle) whose wines can be tasted and bought on site. Although mainly open between June and September, it may be open for some weekends, please check the website for more information.
