Since the Neolithic Age, the Ollioules area has been synonymous with quality craftsmanship. From alley to alley, your guide will comment on different ancient techniques used for the decoration of facades and window frames (gypseries) during the Renaissance period.
Centuries of olive oil production were used to make both olive oil and the famous "Savons de Toulon" (now Savon de Marseille).
