  • National collection of 40 varieties of almonds productive or tasty, soft or hard shells, bitter or sweet. The “Demi-tendre” d'Apt, for example, is very popular with nougat artisans. The “Verdale”, the “Princess”... are widespread in Provence.

    150 tree seedlings make up this conservatory orchard, necessary for biodiversity. Cultivated in France since the 16th century, it is also the first tree to open its white and pink flowers despite the late frost, in the last days of winter.
    A piece of advice ? Come in Spring... Fairy landscape guaranteed!
    Combine the visit of the orchard with the guided tour of the Moulin de Salignan, by a geologist from the Luberon Park, every Tuesdays during school holidays of April, July and August at 10:30. Reservation Maison du Parc in Apt 04 90 04 42 00.
