Thanks to the faithful and generous support of the Crédit Agricole Alpes Provence Foundation, as well as the Marcel Pagnol Endowment Fund, the restoration work of the olive grove’s restanques in the “Bastide neuve” (Hameau des Bellons, Allauch) could start under the impulse of the Provençal Cultural Heritage Association. We would like to thank Gilles Valerio, Eric Barraud, Laurent Leyre, Nicolas Dromard and Damien D’Andréa.

The work will be long and all the good wills are welcome! Do not hesitate to contact the association to help in the next steps.

As a reminder, this renovation is part of a larger project that will lead to the creation of an open-air museum combining the discovery of the Provençal land and heritage, as well as Marcel Pagnol’s filming locations in the hills of his childhood.
