Cheval-Blanc is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.

The commune is a level of administrative division in the French Republic. French communes are analogous to civil townships and incorporated municipalities in the United States and Canada, Gemeinden in Germany or comuni in Italy. The United Kingdom has no exact equivalent, as communes resemble districts in urban areas, but are closer to parishes in rural areas where districts are much larger. Communes are based on historical geographic communities or villages and are vested with significant powers to manage the populations and land of the geographic area covered. The communes are the fourth-level administrative divisions of France.

Vaucluse Department of France

The Vaucluse is a department of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in the southeast of France, named after the famous spring the Fontaine de Vaucluse. The name Vaucluse derives from the Latin Vallis Clausa as the valley here ends in a cliff face from which emanates a spring whose origin is so far in and so deep that it remains to be defined.

In the administrative divisions of France, the department is one of the three levels of government below the national level, between the administrative regions and the commune. Ninety-six departments are in metropolitan France, and five are overseas departments, which are also classified as regions. Departments are further subdivided into 334 arrondissements, themselves divided into cantons; the last two have no autonomy, and are used for the organisation of police, fire departments, and sometimes, elections.
