Circumstances and exact date of installation of a Templar house in Peirasson are unknown at this time.
The first mention of the existence of that house dates back to a document from 1256, which says that Bernard of Monte-Dracone(1), Preceptor of the House of Peirasson, is mentionned as witness in a case relative to the Templar house of Ruou.
Around the end of the 13th century, acts mention that the preceptor of Peirasson is also the one of the house of Cogolin.
The house of Peirasson is located on the territory of the municipality of Flassans and had also lands in the neighbouring municipality of Besse. In addition to rights relative to their possession of Cogolin, Templars owned also incomes from the hamlets of Valsenèque and Canadel, and supported also seven men in the castrum of Cannet-du-Luc(2).
The time of joining of the houses of Peirasson and Cogolin is also unknown, because we don't know exactly the period of creation of the later.
