La Vie Contée
The oil mill « La Vie Contée » that can be translated “as is a tale, so is life” has been imagined by Anne and Cyrille in 2016, when they took over the family walnut orchard and reinvented the. stone barn dating back from the “golden age of peasants”. They revived a centenary walnut oil mill, to. perpetuate this exceptional and acknowledged know-how on the Périgord walnut and walnut oil.
They created the brand. “La Vie Contée” to get alive, savour and share this vegetal, hand-built, landscape and gastronomic heritage; the walnut tree, this life tree and its precious fruit already cherished by Romans (they called it “Jupiter’s acorn”) and the ancient Viscounty of Turenne the castel of which can be admired from their oil mill.
