Head to Puyméras for a Provencal Lunch
Puyméras is a small village on a hill a few km northeast of Vaison-la-Romaine at the northern tip of the Vaucluse near the border of the Department of the Drome.
There are quite a few good restaurants near Sablet. We come to Puyméras to dine at Le Girocèdre Restaurant because they serve very traditional, in our opinion, Provençal food and there are always good fish and vegetarian options for Shirley.
We usually find parking across the street from the village fountain and lavoir and if not there, a little further down the hill in a small grassy lot reserved for clients of the restaurant. Continue reading here for the original contributor blog post and photos by Our House in Provence.

When You Visit Puyméras
The village is tiny with a population of 587 (2018 census), but like its neighbours has plenty of charm to whoo the visitor.
The wine is excellent! The vineyards of Puyméras stretch across the boundaries of the Drôme and Vaucluse départements and several small communes. Part of the Southern Rhône, the vines grow in old terraces and soil with a mix of red stone and sand.
The View! Puyméras is a perched village, only six (6) kilometres from Vaison-la-Romaine, with a beautiful view of Mont Ventoux. Agricultural fields – grapes, lavender and olives surrounded the town.
Some History. The St. Michael church, built in Romanesque style, has an impressive bell tower (1743) and a marble altar. Enter the heart of the village via the Sabrun Gate in the 14th-century ramparts. Unfortunately, the castle was destroyed during the French Revolution.
