Day out on our family summer holiday to the south France. We had a fantastic day visiting Florian the french Confiserie where they handmade all their exquisite sweets, chocolates, jams and candied fruits.
Founded in 1949, the Confiserie Florian in the Gorges du Loup sits in a breathtaking setting along the banks of the Loup river, in the lower hills of Grasse. It's approx 1 hour drive from central Cannes and in the same Gorge there is a canyoning/caving tour company if you want to mix it up and do a bit of adrenalin with your sugar fix! The flowers of roses, jasmine, and violets from the Grasse region are crystallized and made into delectable treats and clementines, pears and tangerines are candied. Yummy!!! The free tour of their factory workshops is fantastic. You can see all their produce being made and then you can taste EVERYTHING in their showroom. It was like being in Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Oscar and Tabitha were transfixed and certainly tried their fair share of treats! We highly recommend this for a day out with your kids!
We'd like to thank Alice our English tour guide who was so informative and helpful.
