The Mill and Educational Film
While visiting the farmhouse, visitors enter two vaulted sheepfold rooms; one houses the mill, while the other serves as the projection room to view Moulin Arizzi’s film, “From the Olive Tree to the Olive Oil.” The film is less than 15 minutes, yet immerses visitors into the origin and culture of the olive tree, olive harvesting, olive oil production, and olive oil’s health benefits and use in preparing Provencal cuisine.
Ecomuseum of Dovecotes
The centerpiece of the estate, our magnificent dovecote housing contains the first ecomuseum of dovecotes in the Alpes-Provence-Côte d’Azur region. While the top of the dovecote housing continues to function as a shelter for pigeons, the first floor houses the ecomuseum, where visitors discover a variety of pigeon nests, historical explanations and a collection of photographs.
Visitors are invited to taste our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, followed by refreshments and regional products that are available in the boutique. If desired, a more sophisticated tasting can be arranged in advance for a fee.
The Botanical Trail
Our nature trail winds through a breathtaking tree-lined park, abundant with 40 native Mediterranean and exotic botanical species.
