La Royère Huile & Vin – Musée de l’Huile d’Olive

in Oppède
  • Domaine de La Royère is a family-run estate taken over by Anne and Jean-Pierre Hugues in 1988. The estate lies between Avignon & Apt, at the base of the Luberon range.

  • Since the early 2000s, we have also been growing 6 hectares of olive trees to make virgin olive oil from the Aglandau valley. Our Museum of Olive Oil presents the ancestral tradition of olive oil in Provence.

    The entire estate is in conversion to organic farming.
