Rucher de la Cala Melosa

Fontvieille - Producer

The Cala Melosa (the honey rock) is a bee-keeping operation located near Saint Peyre d'Entremonts Chapel, which dates back to the 12th century.
You can observe the apiary and the bees at work. You can follow the different stages of apiculture, from extracting the honey to putting it in jars.
With the collaboration of the 'Apier ou le Mur a des Oreilles' association, we organise four cultural events at Cala Melosa Apiary and Saint Peyre d'Entremonts Priory:
-with the Fête du Roseau, a mediaeval carnival on Saturday 2 March with a mediaeval ball in the yurt, and on Sunday 3 March, creation of the Caramentran puppet around the fire (cleaning, tapping and tuning in the iron heated in the fire).
- Sunday 24 March: Spring Festival, games and small 'guinguette' bar
--15 and 16 June: Art and Heritage, painters and sculptors exhibit their work among the olive groves; music and concert on Friday evening,
slide show on the walls of St Peyre d'Entremonts Priory
- Sunday 20 October: Touch of Culture and bee-related stories.
