LA ROYRIE is an olive grove in Grasse, France – the world capital of perfume founded in the 15th century, producing the most beautiful form of the olive: the quintessential perfect oil, one of the best European oil, produced in a fantastic organic garden. Monique and Lionel Brault decided to better inform the consumer through visits of the olive grove and training sessions: information, comparisons and olive oil tastings. The visits are made by the owner in French and English, only on reservation call before
