Villeneuve is located in Durance valley. This village, like many other villages in Provence, is built on the top of a hill to keep it protected from invaders. Villeneuve in French mean "New town" but was constructed in Middle Ages, originally further in the forest on the top of a high cliff. Only the little chapel remains on the rock to show where the original village was located.
