H of Leos, the Ambassador of a Provence of Excellence
Ambassador of a Provence of Excellence
and Sponsor of Fondation Positive & Village-monde
(the Positive & Global Village Foundation),
the oils H of Leos bear the identity and ambition
of the city where they were born, and
which they represent in France and worldwide.
The history of Domaine Leos is intertwined with that of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
Domaine Leos is where the first inhabitants of the city of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue settled. Indeed, the « Plateau of Margoye, » where the olive trees of Domaine Leos are planted, is at the origin of the creation of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. It was initially called « Macao**, according to the historian Albert Ceccarelli*. In fact, the first peoples of this land settled at « Margoy » which corresponded to the city’s highest point, before moving to their current location. One can still find some stones from the Roman oppidum and fortifications, erected on the highest part of the plateau so as to protect the first inhabitants.
L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the symbol of cultural and touristic excellence of Provence
With its water wheels that recall its industrial past, the quality of its local products, and its canals dating back to the Roman period, this « Comtadine Venice » (« the Illa de Venissa » in Provençal) is a tourist mecca, a symbol of the best that Provence has to offer » (delimited by the Alpilles, the Luberon, and the
three « As », the cities of Avignon, Arles, and Aix-en-Provence). It is also a city of art and culture, renowned for its antiques and art galleries (ranked third in Europe for its flea market and antiques, with 300 antique sellers and gallery owners present there all year long and more than 800 dealers during the annual Fair on August 15), as well as for the numerous personalities from the world of art and culture who visited, lived, or still live there today.
The oils H of Leos see in themselves the ambition of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue to assert itself as a « global village ». On the one hand, it defends its quality of life and sense of community, while on the other hand, it asserts itself as being innovative and open to the world like René Char, its poet, who welcomed Albert Camus, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Nicolas de Staël.
« Positive enterprise, » Domaine Leos is pleased to partner with the brand and foundation of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and also to support the shared dream of its actors, which is to turn their « global village » into tomorrow’s ideal city by focusing on the quality of life of its inhabitants while setting up a citizen-based, sustainable, and altruistic approach to the development of its land.
