The Olive tour

This tour in the Drôme Provençale includes a stroll around the Provencal market of Nyons and a visit of the olive oil mill in the morning.

 

 

                          

 

After a drive and a picnic in the olive groves, we are welcomed on the farm of a local producer’s, to taste local produces such as olive oil, wine and apricot juice.

 

            

 

On the way back we visit the “scourtinerie” in Nyons, a unique workshop where “scourtins”, (the traditional coconut-fibre mats which were used in the oil press) are manufactured. Now they are used for decoration.
