Musée & Dégustation huile d'olive

Luberon Regional Natural Park, RD13
Ancienne route de Forcalquier
04130 VOLX - Haute-Provence

Located in the Luberon Regional Natural Park,
the Ecomuseum is a place dedicated to the living culture of the olive tree.

THE OLIVE TREE ECOMUSEUM / "LE PETIT RIBIER", NATURAL BISTRO - DELICATESSEN, VOLX - ALPES DE HAUTE PROVENCE

Built at the beginning of the 20th century, the industrial building that today houses the Olive Tree Ecomuseum was first a place where limestone was transformed into quicklime.

It is in this area steeped in history, at the foothill of the mountain called "La Roche Amère" which marks the beginning of the Luberon, that the first factory of L'Occitane products was first set up almost 40 years ago. Deeply attached to the soul of this place, it was in 2006 that Olivier Baussan installed his collection of objects related to the mythical tree, gleaned around the Mediterranean.

Since 2015 owned by " Maison Brémond 1830 ", it is the space where the Olive Tree and its culture are promoted. From the biology of the tree to its mythology, from the traditional making of soaps to the use of oil as a lighting fuel, from the pruning of the olive tree to the harvesting of the fruit, and from the making of olive oil to the formal exercise of tasting, each stage of the journey is an invitation to travel, to see and taste Provence and the Mediterranean.
