Discover a typical Provençal agricultural site with its mill
traditional oil, its dry stone remains, its noria and well
other treasures, witnesses of an ancestral way of life and know-how.

A true conservatory of the olive tree, the garden houses an olive grove of more than 500 olive trees of 113 different varieties dotted with multiple traditional crops. Lavender, Narcissus, Immortals, Iris rub shoulders and permeate the garden with their perfumes and colours...

Over the seasons, the garden will reveal all its secrets from the harvest to the
processing of typical Provençal agricultural products. Come and experience with us the making of olive oil, bread over a wood fire or the traditional harvest!

The Jardin des Oliviers is a site with an educational vocation for the transmission of traditional Provençal methods and know-how. It is open to all curious people who are passionate about history and nature.

The Olive Garden is not a public park but an educational and cultural site. It is therefore forbidden to smoke inside the site and dogs, even on a leash, are not allowed.

The building and its museum part (oil mill + exhibition) is accessible to people with reduced mobility, however, except for the outdoor areas near the building, the rest of the garden is not accessible to people with reduced mobility.

The site is for educational purposes, the production of olive oil is not offered for sale, however, in periods outside the health crisis, a tasting of olive oil is offered to visitors at the end of the guided tour.

The olive oil is produced on site and is distributed to schoolchildren who participate in educational activities on the olive tree.
