Admire Les Baux de Provence, medieval village labelled as “one of the most beautiful villages in France”. This immense and superb stone fortress is without doubt one of the “must-sees” on the Provencal tourist trail!
Taste olive oil in a mill in Les Baux de Provence valley, one of the most beautiful landscapes of olive groves in Provence, where olive oil, cracked olives and black olives are entitled to the “Registered Designation of Origin” (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) label. The unusual feature of this A.O.C. olive oil is that it is made from a blend of several varieties of olives. It is the subtle blend of these varieties, a secret jealously guarded by each producer that gives the oils a whole palette of different flavours.
Wine-tasting in an estate at the foot of the Alpilles hill range.
The wines of Les Baux are defined by the unique, multi-faceted character of the soil, naturally protected and dried by the mistral wind. The Baux de Provence wines have been officially recognised since 1995 by an A.O.C. Nowadays, A.O.C Les Baux de Provence wines are unusual in that the grapes are grown using organic or biodynamic methods over 85% of their geographical area.
