A traditional oil mill founded in 1856 by the Marquis de Gaudemaris. The period of traditional millstones, presses and pressing mats is long gone, and the mill is now equipped with ultra-modern facilities. It belongs to the Vaucluse olive grower group ('Groupement des oléiculteurs de Vaucluse').
Its olive oils have often won prizes at the Concours Général de Paris, with gold medals in 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2008. This 100% natural extra virgin oil is made from Verdale olives from Carpentras.

-The mill is open for tours all year round, Monday to Saturday, from 8:30 to 11:30 am (12 noon in summer) and from 2 to 6 pm (6:30 pm in summer). Open on Sundays from Easter to the end of August, from 10:30 to 11:30 am and from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. Free self-guided tour of the old mill (with its millstone, press and tools)
