Near and around the house and as well all over the area, are olive trees. The Languedoc is famous for its many varieties of olives, olive oils, tapanades, even olive oil shower gels. Anywhere you go, you can see olive trees or groves. Most of these olive trees are several hundred years old.

The olives are still green and and not yet ripe for picking. They actually look like green marbled candy on the trees.

If you wanted to buy an olive tree for your garden, the trees cost several hundred euros. So, it is better to enjoy them in nature.
