In the old centre of Saint Pierre all the houses have been renovated, which makes the village look very smart.

There are several farms in the municipality, such as Jean Spati's farm in the district of Souquetons.

He'll invite you to a demonstration of truffle-sniffing dogs, and maybe he'll then cook up a "brouillade de truffe" (scrambled eggs with truffles), for you to taste, a local speciality. While there you can buy this famous black diamond, called a "rabasse" in Provencal.

There's only one bar in the village centre. Shopping sprees will have to wait till you get to the nearest town Carpentras (15 km) or Avignon which is just 30 km away.
