Guarding the northern approaches to the South region in the charming Vaucluse department, Courthézon is a town of 6,000 inhabitants with an outstanding heritage, among which stands out the superb Château de Val-Seille.
Courthézon is steeped in history. It spans the oldest known Neolithic settlement in France. In the Middle Ages, it became part of the Comtat Venaissin under papal sovereignty and was a land of princes under the Principality of Orange (1181–1713). To this day, the heir apparent to the Dutch monarch bears the title of "Prince of Orange".
Seated in the heart of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape PDO, Courthézon boasts exceptional lands and vineyards.
Just a stone's throw away from the A7 and A9 motorways and a few minutes from the Avignon high-speed train station, our municipality is a prime strategic location for the businesses that make up our economic scene.
We are delighted to welcome the 80th edition of Paris-Nice to our town, which was awarded the "Terre de Jeux 2024" label. Stage 6 will be a showcase for jaw-dropping landscapes and stunning views with the Mont Ventoux looming in the background.
