Between Manosque and Pierrevert, at the bend of a tiny road, discover an unexpected house built on the hillside. This bastide, forlorn and forgotten for eighty years, has come back to life with the help of Geraldine and Robert Le Bozec. This history-filled place used to be split between a middle-class society occupying the best aisle during the summer, and a local peasant family, living in the farm and working on the fields all year round. These two worlds are now united and offer a fine and hearty welcome.


The geographic situation is favourable to the trees without which the provençal cooking would lack taste : the olive trees. Geraldine and Robert have made this culture the keystone of their farm.
In these perfume-filled hills, let yourself be guided by Robert's passion for these olive-groves he restores, cares for and enlarges patiently, ever careful of the biological rhythm of the trees.
After this, he takes you to the temple of another savoir-faire : the kitchen. There you'll taste several different oils and learn how to use them properly in your dishes
