The Souviou Estate
A place of history and vestiges of the past
The Souviou Estate is located in Provence near the village of Le Beausset (Var).
It extends over 75 hectares of vineyards, olive trees and forest overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It is a place rich in history and a true conservatory of 7000 olive trees, 200 of them are millennia old, which stand majestically on terraces and testify to this era.
Some shards found on the property seem to say that a little less than two thousand years ago, men, fleeing from Roman attacks on the oppida near the sea, chose to settle in a hidden valley in the foothills of the Massif de la Sainte Baume. The protective isolation, a place where one could find water all year round, sunshine, a not too rough soil…
Everything led to believe that with a lot of work the place would become flourishing. The vegetation grew happily: oaks, strawberry trees, cades, broom, rockrose, heather, iris flowers and wild cyclamen cohabited with thyme, rosemary, savory, marjoram and wild sage which gave the valley its name much later (in Provençal: Saùvi means sage).
