The village originally stood on a hillside further to the west, looking down onto the plain. It gradually descended into the plain, reaching its current position in the 19th century. The medieval chapel of Saint Philomène, the last vestige of the village’s past, still clings to the hillside amidst an unspoilt wood of holm oaks. It offers a magnificent view down onto the wine-growing plain.
Puget-Ville is right at the heart of the ‘golden triangle’ region, home of the Côtes de Provence Pierrefeu appellation. The local people nurture this rich heritage with a passion: a vast expanse of vineyards reaching from the edge of the village to the Maures massif, on the characteristic red, sandy clay loam of this Permian depression.
Set amongst unspoilt hills scented with balsamic plants, Puget-Ville has retained the values and traditions of the Var hinterland without rejecting progress. It can justifiably claim to be the most important rural village east of Toulon.
