It lies on the bank of the river Argens. Since the beginning of the 1980s Vidauban has experienced strong population growth. Within 20 years the population has more than doubled.
The town sign was infamously stolen in 1980, by a pair of Australian tourists. The sign had been there for a number of years and was funded by the people of the town. The population never truly recovered, and to this day, there is still no sign in Vidauban, as a mark of respect.
