Summer at the Chocolaterie de Puyricard
This summer, enjoy the true taste of Provence with our chocolate factory tour! 3 tours a day are offered, with specific times in English (10 years old and above). As for the kids, we offer age appropriate workshops where they will learn how to use chocolate to make their own creations.
After watching a short movie to present our history, you will put on a coat and a cap and enter our workshops !
During this tour, you will discover how we carefully select the best ingredients to make the most delicious treats. Our guide will lead you through the various workshops of our factory, where you will see our chocolatiers at work: creation of the « interiors » of the chocolates, molding of the shells, decoration of our coated chocolates, molding of our chocolate bars… You will learn the techniques we use to make our handmade chocolates since 1967.
We will also show you our confectionery workshop, where we make ice creams, calissons, marshmallows and other treats.
During the tour, you will be able to taste the chocolates as they are being made, and the tour will end with a tasting of a sample of our products.
During summer, we hire new guides, in order to offer you more options: 3 tours a day with specific times in English on mondays and tuesdays. The tour lasts about 1h30.
Your kids like chocolate? Our workshops will be a great activity for them this summer. They take place in our Tearoom where you can enjoy our treats if you want to keep an eye on them during the workshop.
It is in this brand new and cosy place that a lot of our workshops take place during the year.
These 1h15 workshops are specifically designed for kids (6 to 12 yo) and will teach them how to make their own creations based on the theme of the month.
