Chasteuil, (pop. 20), whose origins date back to the 16th century, is a small hamlet perched on the mountainside at an altitude of 900 meters and well exposed to the south. The hamlet has been restored by its inhabitants in the local architectural tradition. From its picturesque site, it dominates the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon, famous for its Canyon, its hiking trails, its river and whitewater sports, its lakes, and its natural beauty.
