Châteaurenard - Tourist office

At the foot of the hill and its majestic castle, Châteaurenard, a "market gardening town", houses its 15,000 inhabitants, while retaining the friendliness and tranquillity of a small Provençal town. Also, it is an ideal holiday resort in the heart Provence.
Châteaurenard cultivates history!
History is carved in capital letters into the stones of the 13th and 15th century feudal castle, ancient fortress of the Counts of Provence, or drawn into the grooves of the market gardening landscape. From its towers, it offers a panoramic view of the Arles Provençal land. Visitors can admire the Durance valley, the Popes' city and the Ventoux, Alpilles and Luberon mountains.
Its wealth today comes from working the land and knowledge of ancient irrigation. In an effort to preserve its heritage, the Agrarian Tools Museum shares this rural heritage.
History is magnified by authentic traditional festivals that punctuate the seasons. The Christmas Market and the Santons Fair animate the beginning of winter. Florissim'art, the flower and arts market, celebrates the return of spring. Different bullfighting events from spring to autumn satisfy both discerning aficionados and curious neophytes. From July to September, carts pulled by 60 horses symbolise the living heritage and traditions of Châteaurenard.
In addition to quality accommodation at the gateway of the major Provençal tourist sites, such as Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Arles and Marseilles, Châteaurenard offers many activities including walks, horse-drawn carriage rides, a swimming pool, tennis courts, other sports fields, outdoor activities including a trial mountain biking area, fitness trails and orienteering.
