Restaurant Le Girocdre in Puymras for Provencal Meals


By Michel

The village of Puymras is located just a seven (7) km northeast of Vaison-la-Romaine, so it is convenient for lunch after the Tuesday morning market and from our house in Sablet. Puymras is a pretty, small village, at the northern tip of the Vaucluse near the border of the Department of the Drme.

When you approach Puymras coming from Vaison-la-Romaine, the village is visible on a rocky outcrop surrounded by beautiful countryside dotted with homes, vineyards and lavender fields. The appearance of a few olive trees and fruit trees among the vineyards is what remains of what used to be a diversified farming area which suffered a devastating frost in 1956 so mostly vineyards remain.

As I said, the village is small, the last census in 2017 showed there are 624 residents who live in the village. They are called Puymrassiennes (ladies of Puymras) and Puymrassiens (men of Puymras). The area has been settled since the end of the Upper Palaeolithic Era (Old Stone Age), more than 10,000 years ago.

This tiny village is exactly where you might expect to find a restaurant that caters to locals and curious food lovers (like us). Recently we discovered Le Girocdre a family-run restaurant that serves traditional Provencal meals.

The Trappo family own and operate Le Girocdre, the name is a combination of Gisle, Roger and Cedric. Roger (father) originally from the Marseille area still buys fish from his friend a fisherman on the Cte Bleu. Cedric (son) is in charge of wine having grown-up in the middle of Cte du Rhne vineyards he is well versed in the local blends. Gisle (the lady of the house) adds the touches that make dining in Provence unique. Local herbs flavour the dishes and trees shade alfresco tables on the restaurants terrace.
