Olive oil mill and Estate Bastide du Laval

A typical landscape of the southern Luberon, a stone’s throw from two villages classified as “Most Beautiful Villages in France”, Ansouis and Lourmarin. The Bastide du Laval mill offers the visitor an immersion and a privileged contact with the landscapes and traditions of Provence.

Here, we cultivate taste, fruitiness and delicate smells… In the heart of the olive grove, made up of 4000 trees, is the “Huile d’olive de Provence” Protected Designation of Origin zone, a guaranteeof traceability, control, know-how and promotion of the land. The olive trees are grown accordingto the principles of organic farming. 

More than an oil mill, Bastide du Laval develops a friendly and educational concept around the olive tree, olive oil, wine and Provence. Olive oil tourism is an alternative to traditional tourism thatallows you to get to know olive oil in depth and capture the essence of the culture that surroundsthe world of the olive tree.
