Go Local - Valbonne & Olive Oils In Grasse


  • 41/2
    hrs Estimate Duration


Discover the charms of two inland villages, one a medieval gem with fine shopping, the other known for its olive oils. Although Grasse is considered to be the birthplace of the French perfume industry, the hilltop village also produces extraordinary olive oils, which you will sample at a private country estate. After the owner introduces you the manufacturing process, you will taste a variety of extra virgin olive oils produced there and nearby. They may include ones flavored with black truffles, basil and lemon. You may also sample one with an Appellation of Origin from Nice. On the walking tour through the medieval village of Valbonne, you will notice that it was designed on a Roman grid plan, so the streets are straight and perpendicular rather than winding. Free time follows, during which you may enjoy browsing the shops and galleries. The village may be small, but it is surprisingly cosmopolitan.


• Enjoy a leisurely and immensely picturesque drive inland to two villages in Provence.
• Spend free time in medieval Valbonne, where you may shop in its sophisticated boutiques.
