Puyvert is an essentially rural town. The village itself was built in 1550 by 6 tenant-far ming families from Lourmarin who coaxed a living from the surrounding fields.
The town slowly developed, some ancient residences were restored and farms were renovated. Today, Puyvert is a small village overflowing with charm.
Before its destruction by the armies of Charles Quint in 1450, the original settlement was situated on a small hill (le Jas de Puyvert).
At the summit, you will discover a huge, magnificent dovecote built in the ancient keep of the small chateau.
Recently restored by the Luberon Nature Park, it gives the impression of proudly guarding the entrance to the Aigue Brun valley..
While visiting Puyvert you can also taste the "AOC Cotes du Luberon" wines, as well as the delicious fruits growing plentifully in the area :cherries, apples, pears, melons and table grapes.
