Le Puy-Sainte-Réparade or Le Puy is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in southern France.GeographyLe Puy-Sainte-Réparade is located 15km North of Aix-en-Provence via the N96 and then the D561.It is located between the ridges of the Trévaresse and the River Durance which marks the natural boundary between the Vaucluse and Bouches-du-Rhône départements. Opposite Le Puy, on the other bank of the river, is Pertuis in the South Luberon.The village is surrounded by vine fields and agricultural land, with arable crops on the plain and the vines on the hills.
