SAINTE-ANNE OLIVE OIL MILL

Imagine a site unlike anything you’ve seen before.

An authentic olive oil mill that is still in operation, with a millstone driven by wooden gears. Settling tanks. Tools of yesteryear continuing to craft olive oils according to ancient, traditional methods.

Imagine a guided tour that shares the secrets of this savoir-faire of our ancestors, inspired by a true passion for the trade.

Discover the delights of the mill’s boutique and taste our local specialties.

ROSSIGNOL OLIVE OIL MILL

Set at the foot of the city of Grasse, the Moulin du Rossignol is one of the Alpes-Maritimes’ last oil mills still in operation. Visitors can discover its wonders on guided tours and during sampling sessions of the mill’s various products. Built in 1760 beside a stream known as “Le Rossignol,” the mill has been managed by the Giorgis family since 1932. Today, new, sophisticated machinery works alongside the granite millstones.

BAUSSY OLIVE OIL MILL

This modern mill, at the foot of the village, just celebrated its hundredth birthday. Yet it is at the cutting edge of oil-milling technology : no more millstones, no more palm-frond mats stacked to filter the oil, no more presses ; instead, a series of steel mixers that allow for streamlined, rapid production by centrifugation, in line with European standards.

OPIO OLIVE OIL MILL

Our mill in the Provençal countryside (15 minutes from Cannes and 10 minutes from Grasse) is a wonderful place to visit with family or friends, whether in summer or winter.

If you have the good fortune to come in the wintertime, you can tour the mill when the production season is in full swing and get an up-close view of how olive oil is made.

In summertime, you can enjoy our exceptional site and tour the mill; a video will show you the various steps of olive-oil production and you can taste our local specialties in the midday Riviera sun!
