Its traditional know-how enables us to maintain the Oueslati variety, an endemic variety with many virtues.

For one day, you’ll enjoy an authentic, immersive experience on their rural estate, with their families and teams, all natives of their village. A unique moment of sharing, where you’ll take part in picking and crushing olives (only during the olive season) in the Gourgueb tradition, preparing the picnic, bread and lunch.
