Located within the Luberon National Park, not far from the Durance River, Pertuis is just a short distance from Aix-en-Provence. Narrow streets, vaulted arches and many fountains - surrounded by rolling hills and orchards and vineyards as far as the eye can see.
Pertuis is a large, pleasant town on the rich plain of the Durance, at the southern edge of the Vaucluse. Called the "Porte du Luberon" due to its location at the southern limit of the Luberon, it's also known as the capital of the Pays d'Aigues.
Peypin d'Aigues is a very small Provençal village but it does have a boulangerie and a bar/restaurant. A little further afield (4 kms) you find the picturesque hilltop village of Grambois which has a cafe/bar, a Michelin starred restaurant, and a small mini-market where you can buy day-to-day provisions for your Provençal holiday. For larger shops and eating out you will find Tour d'Aigues 8 kilometres down the road. Pertuis (13kms) is the major commercial centre in the area which boasts two large supermarkets as well as a selection of bars and restaurants.Read more...
