Olive harvest tour at Les Pastras is an unforgettable experience!
We've heard that people born in Provence amid olive groves, cannot live without olive trees. We became aware of that magic during our short stay at Les Pastras this November. It was an unforgettable experience. We picked olives by hand – indeed the best way to discover local culture and lifestyle, as well as to learn about olive oil production. Johann was absolutely charming host. Les Pastras is a ... more stunningly beautiful rural area and a great place to be for those searching for peace and art of slow living. We found local gastronomy absolutely delicious. The aroma of truffle oil is amazing. We loved the fact that you are producing local product that is excellent in quality. We enjoyed a tour of fruit trees, beehives and learned a lot about olive oil health benefits."
