Location:Barroux is a charming picturesque village, a real 'quintessential' village in Provence.
Le Barroux has kept its historic charm thanks to the absence of commercial activity. The village offers an excellent restaurant with a splendid outdoor dining area, a cafe with a small menu close to the house, a store for basic supplies like your morning "baguette“ and a post office.
On Saturday morning there is a market in the village selling all food and Provencal goods. The surrounding villages such as Caromb, offer all shopping facilities you may need during your stay: supermarket, bakery, butcher, vegetable shop, pharmacy, bank etc.
