La Charmille is set on a large 60 acres property surrounded by vineyards. It is close to Pertuis, a sizable little town, similar in feeling to Aix-en-Provençe, 20 km to the south. 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 château, and a clock-tower campanile built in 1605. The tourist bureau is located in a great old château.
