Between the vineyards and the aromatic scrub-lands, 1250 acres of olive groves are part of the revered AOC Vallée des Baux. Olive oil, like wine, can be subjected to "appellations" guaranteeing top quality. The olives are handpicked and their taste varies from one variety to another. Each type of olive oil has its own specially designed label stating its "specificities" and a list of food that goes well with it. The boutique is full of flavors and fragrances, unusual objects and arts & crafts. Christmas Market in December.
