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.
This traditional setting is where epicureans and curiosity-seekers can explore the behind-the-scenes world where the olive products are crafted : olive oil, olive pastes, and even olive jam (made using a secret house recipe).
Depending on the season, you can schedule a tour during actual production to see the machines in operation.
