Historic village of Faucon (pop. 380), the name means "peregrine"; a favorite spot of vacationers and second home owners. It is in that small western part of Les Baronnies, which today belongs to the Vaucluse, a department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region. Remnants of the old ramparts and lots of nice village houses on Rue du Portailand, Rue de la Pusterle and Place des Tilleuls. Why is it so popular? It is has a very well preserved medieval architecture, it's peaceful and has one of the best views to Mt.Ventoux. There is not a lot of infrastructure here, but you are quite close to Vaison la Romaine. During the summer there is a Provençal market every Wednesday and Saturday.
VIllage market

Faucon:

Here's a peaceful and ever so friendly little village that offers a market day on Sunday and Wednesday afternoons ...and once a month, you can enjoy the pleasures and tastes of the regional produce market. The terrace on this lovely home offers you breathtaking views of Mount Venteaux. And so if fishing, biking, hiking, walking, sleeping, drinking wine, relaxing, touring or meeting people is on your vacation list, Faucon should be on your list also.

Nestled in this quiet little village is the home of Claude and Anne-Marie who are both ready to greet you with open arms. If you are worried about your limited French, not to worry here, they speak English and will be able to help you get settled. Here are few photos and details about their home:

"I discovered Faucon and Claude and Anne-Marie Cordier's house in 2003 and have been back every year since. I love this place and area so much, I attempted to purchase a home in Faucon. With French tradition, the mayor out bid me. I now have a lovely home in Seguret." - Mary Ann Hill, Australia
