Located in a beautiful 19th century manor house, the company’s production workshop is open to visitors. The pastry cooks work under the curious and watchful eye of tourists. The tour begins with a tasting, washed down with a ‘bolée’ (bowl) of cider. It’s the perfect moment to discover the different products, especially the ‘galettes’, ‘palets’, madeleines and salted butter caramels. Spread over five floors, the shop also offers a fantastic selection of traditional local products.
