What are the different olive tree varieties? Where do they grow? How was olive oil produced in the past centuries and how is it made now?
The answers to these questions lay at the Musée de l'Huile d'Olive!

A Convivial and Educational Journey through Time

From picking to production, old presses to modern technology: The Olive Oil Museum presents a unique journey into the prestigious condiment of the Meditarranean Cuisine's history. Discover an entertaining tour highlighted through original scenography and multimedia presentations.

Cultivating & Harvesting

The domesticated olive tree specie Olea Europa adapts very well to dry and sunny climates. Pruning is performed at the end of winter to maintain open space in the center of the tree, which enables sunlight to reach all the branches. Harvesting at La Royère is performed with rakes that literally comb the branches and begins in November when the fruits become ripe.

The Different Crushing Techniques and Ancient Presses

Explore around 30 different pressing units, cultivation tools, transport and storage equipments, miller tools... All ancient and exclusive pieces from different regions of the Mediterranean Basin.

The Old Mill

Discover the identical reconstruction of an antique mill from the town of Monticello in Corsica that depicts the olive oil manufacturing stages of the 1930s. Many original pieces from the mill have been gathered and thoroughly restored to be showcased at the museum.
