The name of the Mas
The Perussier is the wild pear tree of Provence, very resistant to heat, but also to temperatures of -12°C. It is an exceptional rootstock for Saint Jean pears or Perles pears. Its small fruits were used in the composition of a local alcohol made from figs. They were also used to feed pigs and poultry. The name of the "Perussier" farmhouse comes from the century-old example on the property, which faces the summer kitchen and overlooks the bowling green.
The almond grove
Nearly 160 feet of almond trees were planted around 1960. Almonds were used in the composition of the famous nougats of Montélimar and the calissons of Aix-en-Provence. Today there are about 90 feet left in the process of being recovered. They offer an extraordinary spectacle when they bloom in the spring.
