Moulin Castelas – Olive Oil Mill

After living for 15 years on the wide-open plains of Arizona (but with their distinctive French Midi accent intact!) Catherine and Jean-Benoît Hugues decided to go back to their roots. They returned home to Provence to dedicate themselves to their passion: the olive tree.

The Domain Castelas’ story began in 1997, when they fell in love with some old olive trees, planted in south-facing land in the rocky range of Les Alpilles, in the locality of Castelas facing Les Baux-de-Provence village.

Today, their olive oils are treasures of flavour and complexity, distinguished regularly by prizes at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris.

Free visits of the mill and olive oil tasting, every day.

May to August

Discover how olives, so symbolic of Provence, develop and offer one of the best oils in the world through a walk in the olive trees, followed by a visit to the mill and a tasting of olive oils.

A gustatory, natural and local discovery for all!

Free admission, upon reservation, limited seating.
