Ansouis (Ansoís in Occitan) is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.

Geography[edit | edit source]

Ansouis is located between the Luberon massif and the Durance river.

History[edit | edit source]

A fortress was first built in the city in the 10th century, and has since been modified three times: once in the 13th century and again in the 15th and 19th centuries.

Demographics[edit | edit source]

The population, after peaking at 1,029 people in 1841, declined to only 463 people in 1931. It has since rebounded to 1,105 in 2006.
