Renewal

After more than 40 years’ absence from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, oil-making has begun again in the commune with the Calanquet oil mill, which was inaugurated on 8 February 2001, at the dawn of the third millennium.

Its name stems from the lovely site on which it is built, in the countryside 4 kilometres from the centre of Saint-Rémy, on the old Roman road. It originates from the word "calan", meaning a rock used as a welcome shelter from the Mistral.
