Restaurant Le Mesclun, Seguret

Two km north of where we live in Sablet, and within leisurely walking distance, is the picturesque village of Séguret. The little village stretches in a narrow band around a solitary hill above the Côte du Rhône vineyards, beside the Dentelles de Montmirail.

Classified as one of the Plus Beaux Village de France, Séguret has narrow cobblestone streets and rough stone walls typical of a medieval town.

If you drive to Séguret, you will have to park your car in the parking lot located at the entrance to the village as it is restricted to pedestrians-only. It is a short walk up the hill through the arched portail of the 14th-century defensive wall into Séguret.

Explore the narrow cobblestone streets. Seguret has two restaurants in the village, a hotel, an art gallery, a santon (clay figurines that depict the colorful people and traditional trades of Provence) atelier and several other small shops.

In the village of Séguret is Restaurant Le Mesclun where we have enjoyed leisurely lunches on the shaded terrace.

And to finish, an apple tart.

  1. Hi,
    I live in Vaison and am always looking for places to take clients to eat. I do not like the restaurant in Vaison owned by the same people; food is not great and neither is the service. SO I wonder if the Mesclun is actually good. Have you eaten there recently?
    Thank you
