Beaumont de Pertuis
Beaumont de Pertuis is a small village situated in the Parc Naturel du Luberon on the border of the Alpes de Haute Provence, the Var and the Bouches du Rhone.
A busy road once ran through the middle of Beaumont de Pertuis which was a prosperous medieval market town in the 14th century. With more than 1,000 inhabitants at the time, Beaumont de Pertuis belonged to one of the largest communes in France !
A delightful walk up the hill leads to the Ste Croix chapel where you can admire the landscape and a panoramic view of the Luberon, and both the Lure and the Sainte Victoire mountains.
This spot is practically the intersection of four deartements!
You can discover the beautiful countryside in the heart of Provence while navigating your way between the four departements which offer: route de la lavande, route de l'ocre, cycling tracks from village to village and the Gorges du Verdon...
The food in this region is delicious and the local produce available is excellent.
Don't miss out on "les petits fromages de chêvre" or goats cheese - with crunchy fresh bread and a glass of red wine, it's delicious!!!
