The Club Hippique de Grasse (Grasse Equestrian Club) is set on 5.6 hectares in the pine-covered hills of the city of perfumes. Formerly known as “The Spur,” the Club Hippique de Grasse was founded as an equestrian center in 1992.
In 1996, Jean-Michel Jahan became its director and improved the club by implementing an active youth-training policy. This policy, focusing on practice in competition settings, led quickly to results.
The pastry crust: 250gr flour, 2 tablespoons fine granulated (caster) sugar, a pinch of salt, 75gr softened butter, 75gr olive oil, one cup orange-blossom floral water.
The pie filling: one medium peeled Pleine de Naples (violin) squash, one-half stick vanilla, half-cup orange-flower water, sugar according to taste.
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.
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!
