...you need to check this place out. Olives, olive oil, olive wood, olive soap... And, of course, what are called 'products of the countryside' like honey and jams and such. Stop by, tour, and enjoy.

What a gem of a place. You can drive past it without realizing what treasure is inside. Some of the best olives I`ve had for a long time as well as other lovely products Its the 2nd call (after the Auberge) on our next visit.

We were staying nearby and had read about L'Oulibo in advance and our expectations were high. They were however exceeded by the tour, which is not only informative of the production of olives and olive oil, but has been constructed with great artistic flair and charm. Also the gift shop is REALLY well done.

Olives and Oil (not Oyl). Informative boutique shop that offer many local products. Great place if you love sampling and need to buy some olives. Also has tours for those who want to learn more. We didn't take the tours, just popped in to get some olives.

The tour gives you much information about the growing, the harvesting and processing of the olives. There are actual olive trees at the location. Also rhey have a very nice movie that shows the processing in detail. After the tour you can taste different oils and olives. It was a nice tour, we really enjoyed it.

A great local institution and a must-see for tourists - even if you don't like olives. For olive lovers the Lucques are superb, and for everyone else there are plenty of high quality local products.

We have a second home in Croatia and were visiting friends who took us to tour the l'oulibo. The tour guide taught us so much about olives and here we sit in Croatia eating the green olive specially grown in Argeliers! YUM...

We were fascinated by this place when we first started visiting the area. We did not think that there were enough olive growers to warrant a co-operative, but how wrong we have been. We have now bought a house close by, and we always visit when down there and buy some products to take back. The jars of olives are... More

If you like olives do NOT miss this, take the tour and learn about Olive culture, sample the oils, taste the different Olive types, even buy a souvenir. Well worth the visit.
