Saint Pierre in Vassols, flowery village
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.
