Goult Visit and La Bartavelle the Restaurant to Try
We enjoyed another fine meal at La Bartavelle in Goult. Their prix-fixe menu gives a choice of three starters including local seasonal asparagus, in the spring. Whilst main courses included a fish choice (wild Turbot), Beef or Rabbit which I had, and it was superb, (see picture).

Exploring (and Eating) in Goult
Goult is a small village in the heart of the Luberon Valley. The residents enjoy a hillside location and beautiful views without the crowds of tourists that invade some of the neighbouring towns. You arrive in Goult on the main street. There is a semi-shaded plaza where you can park before heading out to explore the avenues on foot. Surrounding the square are a few restaurants including La Carillon (terrific food), Café de la Poste (a traditional bar-restaurant with lighter fare) and of course la Bartavelle.
To work up an appetite or to work off your meal stroll along the main street to discover the history of this town.
Walk uphill towards the Moulin de Jérusalem, a windmill that functioned until the end of the 19th Century. After restoration work, the village now maintains the mill. Discover the 11th century La Chapelle Romane de Saint-Véran. Take a look (from outside) at the remains of a medieval era chateau that dates from the 17th Century, and today this is private property.
