The Divine Taste Of Olive Oil
Learn all about the secrets of one of Provence’s specialties, olive oil, through a fun-filled visit of a traditional oil mill, followed by a tasting session.
If there is one traditional agricultural activity of Provence, it would have to be olive oil making. For hundreds (even thousands) of years, people have been growing olives in the region and have pressed these olives to make the purest and most delicious olive oil.
Through this 1.5 hour private experience, you and your children will learn all about olive oil making, from the harvest to the final bottled product. Set in a very traditional oil mill (a name still used today, even if the traditional windmills have been replaced by more modern machines), your private host will tell you all about the secrets to making delicious olive oil. From the quality of the olives (and the type of olives used) to the temperature, everything is monitored and controlled to get the best tasting olive oil.
But visiting the mill and seeing how the production is made isn’t the only highlight of this activity. It would be unthinkable to let you walk out of this charming place without giving you the opportunity to taste the pure olive oil. Along with local savory snacks, let your private olive oil specialist tell you all about the different aromas and flavors. You and your children will eventually become experts in olive oil!
This activity is a perfect visit to add to a discovery of the area called Les Alpilles. Should you want us to organize a full day of fun filled activities and sightseeing in the area, let us know!
