Crillon-le-Brave is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.Like many of the older villages in the region, it was built on a hilltop for defensive purposes, and to provide more farmland on the plains below. It is a very small town, with only one paved road running through the middle. It contains little more than a café, a hotel, a restaurant, a church, and a school.GeographyCrillon-le-Brave is situated 12km from Carpentras, 35km from Avignon and about 2km from Bédoin. It lies close to the Mont Ventoux, at the south foot.HistoryThe origins of the village date back to Roman times, when it went by the name Crillonium, and later Crillon, but one could say that its modern history begins in the 14th century when a leading Avignon family acquired the feudal rights to the village. A long line of dukes ruled Crillon throughout the period leading up to the French Revolution.The village takes its full name of Crillon-le-Brave from the most legendary of its dukes: Louis des Balbes de Berton de Crillon or "Le Brave Crillon" (1541–1615) was one of Henri IV's fiercest and most valiant generals during the French Wars of Religion in the late 16th century. The same Crillon family also gave its name to the famous Hôtel de Crillon in Paris.
