From Ancient history Puy Sainte Réparade has seduced men thanks to its elevated position. It was inhabited by the Romans and then in the XII° century, the Archbishops of Aix built their château there because of their interest in the agricultural qualities of the area. Unfortunately there are only a few remains left in the village.

Vast vine fields and agricultural lands surround the village, with the arable crops on the plain and the vines on the hills. The wine produced is very high quality.
