Vacqueyras is a village most well known for its wine production. Its small centre retains a lot of charm and you can enjoy a stroll around the narrow streets, soaking up the atmosphere of this sunny, agricultural village.
The village centre still houses a Medieval guard tower dating from the 11th/12th century and you'll be able to spot signs of the Knights Templar in some places around it, as well as the walls of the old town which date to the 15th century.
At one stage the portal into the old town was the only way in and out of the village but then a second entrance was build in around 1761 next to the church.
You'll notice quite a few fountains dotted about the village, one of which "La Grand Fontaine" was the first public drinking fountain in the village, fed by the waters from the Tombadou river. There are also a small handful of pretty stone houses around the village centre and two small chapels.
