Moulin Castelas

Castelas Mill


Nestled in the heart of the Vallée des Baux-de-Provence, under the watchful eye of the Château des Baux, CastelaS Mill opens the doors to authentic treasures.

"When you're born in Provence, you can't live without the scents of the garrigue, the breath of the mistral, the caress of the sun and the magic of the olive tree, the tree that shapes the Provencal landscape.
Inspired by this bucolic picture, Catherine and Jean-Benoît Hugues passionately cultivate the tradition of the olive tree, a hundred-year-old tree, sovereign and capricious. After spending fifteen years in the United States, on the vast plains of Arizona, they decided to return to their roots. They returned to their Provencal roots in 1997 when they fell in love with some old olive trees planted on the southern slopes of the Alpilles at a place called CastelaS. Today, Domaine CastelaS produces olives on 45 hectares of Appellation d'Origine Protégée (AOP) land in the Vallée des Baux de Provence (including 15 hectares of organic farming) and 65 hectares of Plaine de Crau (AOC Provence).
"We work with the seasons, we work with the wind, we work with nature". With deep respect for the landscape, nestled in the heart of the Vallée des Baux de Provence under the protective gaze of the château, the CastelaS Mill extracts olive oils with intense aromas.
Fruity green, old-fashioned or aromatic olive oils, table olives and tapenades are all part of a typical taste escape that resembles a Van Gogh painting.
