Buoux Fort (Fort de Buoux) [area map]

Châteaurenard Castle [Châteaurenard Area Map] - Châteaurenard Castle is the iconic fortified Medieval château standing above the small town of Châteaurenard.
 
The castle is said to date from the 13th and the 15th centuries. The area was the domain of the local ruling family Châteaurenard going back at least to the 10th century: a reference from 970 mentions "Eldeberthus de Castro-Raynardus" as the first lord of Châteaurenard, and another 10th century document has it listed as Castellum Rainardi.
