About Local Restaurants

Chez Bruno

This highly esteemed restaurant thoroughly deserves it's fame as one of the greatest French truffle restaurants. His cooking satisfies the expectations of the the most demanding gourmet. Bruno sets himself high standards, as is clear from the motto hanging in the kitchen. "Le travail bien fait n'est plus à faire, faisons-le avec le coeur." - "Not only work well, do it with the heart."

You don't dine à la carte at Chez Bruno, you order a three-course menu. The menu changes each week according to the season and the market, but Bruno tends to choose foie gras to complement his trademark truffles. Bruno, works with ten varieties of truffles, which enables him to serve truffles all year round, at very reasonable prices. The very expensive black truffle, or Tuber melanosporum, is only in season from mid-November through March. And the expensive white Alba truffle, is harvested from mid-October into December. Bruno doesn't deny that the Alba is unmatched for its aroma and complex taste, or that the melanosporum is superior in flavour to the cheaper summer truffle. His argument is simple. Aren't very good truffles better than no truffles at all?

2 Km south of Lorgues down the D10 towards Taradeau.

About History

Historic sites in Provence

Provence has been inhabited since prehistoric times. It was known in ancient times as part of Narbonensis, inhabited by Ligurians and later Celts. The coastal strip was settled by Greeks and Phoenicians from around 600 BC onwards, with Marseille becoming one of the great trading cities of the Mediterranean. It was progressively settled by the Romans from the 2nd century BC, eventually becoming a province of the Roman Empire. This gave it its name, from the Latin provincia, as Provence was one of the first and most romanised provinces of the Roman Empire.

Christianity arrived in Provence very early and the region was already extensively Christianised by the 3rd century AD, with numerous monasteries and churches being constructed. Provence fared badly in the aftermath of the fall of the Roman Empire, suffering repeated invasions: Visigoths in the 5th century, Franks in the 6th century and Arabs in the 8th century, as well as repeated raids by Berber pirates and slavers.

Dolmens are collective graves. The room(chamber) funeral, opened to the sleeping, of which remain here the paving stone of coverage (about 25 tons) and the supports were contained in a stony screed.

"Folauet, called me these people..."
Dante quotes it in the Divine Comedy, paying homage to its talents of troubadour. Wire of merchant génois, Foulques had come to seek fortune in Marseilles before being devoted to poetry. In rupture with its past, it entered, in 1196, in the order of Cîteaux to become, in 1201, abbot of the abbey of Thoronet. Its election as bishop of Toulouse, in 1206, in the heart of the country cathare, falls under the logic of the pope Innocent III who, constantly, was based on the order of Cîteaux to try to extirpate the heresy. Until its death, December 25, 1231, and to the sides of other cistercians, like Pierre de Castelnau and Arnaud Amaury, but also of Domenica saint, Foulques was devoted, under difficult conditions, with this negotium pacis and fidei which was the Albigensian crisis. II was buried with the Cistercian abbey of Grandselve, close to Toulouse.
