La Roque-sur-Pernes, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

A few kilometers from L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, perched on its rocky ridge, La Roque-sur-Pernes is an adorable village in the Comtat Venaissin that looks like a Provençal nativity scene. It has managed to preserve its historical heritage and is the ideal place for those looking for calm and serenity.

What makes this village special?

La Roque-sur-Pernes was an important village in the Middle Ages. It has retained its air of yesteryear, with its cobbled and winding streets, its shaded square with its fountain, its Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul church. Its 11th century castle has been restored several times but cannot be visited. It still dominates the town, as if to protect it from possible assailants.

As the region is magnificent, hiking, cycling or horse riding are highly recommended. The landscapes are breathtaking, and the surrounding villages to be discovered without fail: Le Beaucet, Saint-Didier, Pernes-les-Fontaines and Venasque.
