A bustling and vibrant village, Saint-Andiol organises a great many typically Provençal events: games in the bull arena, pétanque tournaments, traditional dancing and regional dress processions… In addition to its own architectural riches (the church of Saint-Vincent, the castle, the chapel of Sainte-Croix…), Saint-Andiol is ideally located to use as a base from where to explore the numerous tourist sites of the area.

What to see, what to visit: the 12th century Romanesque church of Saint-Vincent, the 9th century chapel of Sainte-Croix at the cemetery (you can see traces of the via Agrippa), the Croix d'Orgon (on the road to Cavaillon), the museum of the Pressoir de Provence (retracing the history of fruit juice producing, mini workshop of artisanal manufacturing). Walks through the castle grounds, which feature a picnic area. Les Baux-de-Provence, the remains of Glanum in Saint Rémy de Provence, Arles and the Camargue, the Alpilles and the Luberon.
Recommended activities: health trail in the castle grounds, walks, mountain biking, swimming, cyclo-touring.
