84120 Pertuis, France
Pertuis is a commune of the Provence in southeastern France. There are all the shops and services of a town, and the bustle of being at the crossroads of two busy highways. It's a traditional town, however, with lots of narrow streets, vaulted arches and many fountains, some dating from the 16th to 19th centuries. Vestiges of the medieval past include a 13th-century tower, now a bell tower, parts of the 14th century defensive wall, remains of a 16th-century chateau, and a clock-tower built in 1605. The tourist bureau is located in an old chateau.
