4 km from the village of Gordes, in the park that she has magnificently planted, Frédérique Duran has created three museums.

The first is the Moulin des Bouillons Museum. Located on a Gallo-Roman site, this 16th century bastide houses a 10-metre oak press from the same period, which is classified as a historical monument. This unique place presents everything related to olive oil, a Mediterranean symbol, and its various uses over the years (lighting, body care, history of Marseille soap, etc.).

On the other side of the park, half-buried, the Museum of the History of Glass and Stained Glass evokes 7 millennia of glass history thanks to an exceptional collection of art, utilitarian and scientific objects. The entire glass epic is retraced, from the evolution of stained glass from the Middle Ages to the present day, to the use of glass over the centuries, from the time of the Pharaohs to NASA's scientific research.

These museums, created by Frédérique Duran, a master glass artist, are linked by a path of sculptures that run alongside stained glass windows. The light plays with the bursts of colour, monumental sculptures turn in the wind and are reflected in the ponds...
