About Paradou & Maussane
Although Maussane was situated on the ancient Roman road linking Arles to Aix en Provence, only a few remains can be seen today. Maussane's history is linked to The Baux de Provence where its inhabitants sought refuge in times of war. Maussane slowly gained independence and soon prospered thanks to its many springs and fertile farmland.
In the 1830s, Maussane possessed more than 650 hectares of olive trees and no less than 12 windmills or "moulins d'huile" used to make olive oil.
