Village of Estoublon
In Estoublon, the olive groves give the landscape a very Provençal color.
The name of this village coming from Establo, "little stable", suggests that it was once a stagecoach inn. Don't miss the listed XNUMXth century clock tower and the XNUMXth century church.
Nearby, the Gorges de Trévans are available to walkers for a moment of relaxation in the cool.
Centennial olive trees and butterflies
In addition to the Gorges de Trévans recognized as an area of exceptional biodiversity, the plateau of olive trees in Estoublon is another remarkable site typically Mediterranean. Indeed, in addition to the private plantations of olive trees, some of which are multi-centenarians, it is possible to discover the butterfly garden, an olive grove conservatory, an orientation table and an information point for the geological reserve. The plateau is also part of the territory of the Asse Natura 2000 Zone.
Starting from the village of Estoublon, a marked path will guide you to the plateau of olive trees passing near the Clock Tower, classified as a Historic Monument.
The Butterfly Garden as a conservatory of the olive grove are decorated with panels so that you can discover these riches on a free visit. The orientation table dominates the Estoublaïsse and the Asse valley.
It is possible to complete a hike down to the Route des Gorges to recover the path marked in yellow and mountain biking which crosses the Estoublaïsse twice: first by the Délasse footbridge then by a new Nepalese footbridge of 35 m long => 2 hour journey to return to the village along the Estoublaïsse.
From the Conservatory, hikers can continue their outing towards the Col de La Croix (located on the D 17 which leads to Majastres). The path (yellow markings) overlooks the Asse Valley and leads to the typical village of Beynes. This route also benefits from mountain bike markings.
All year, every day.
