Far more than a simple olive oil mill, Bastide  du  Laval  is  keen  to  develop  a friendly  and  educational  approach  to the  fascinating  world  of  olive  trees, olive oil, wine and, of course, Provence. Olive tourism serves as an alternative to  traditional  tourism,  offering  in- depth  knowledge  of  the  olive  oil industry  and  capturing  the  true essence of the culture surrounding the domain of the olive tree.The  olive  oils  produced  at  the  mill as well as the wines from the domain itself  are  sold  in  the  boutique,  along with a selection of local products.
