  • Interresting info about cacao and how they made chocholate. It's possible to get the info in english, but they mainly speak french in the tasting and when telling about the process, with a short recap in english. But really good flavors!
  • Great tour. Guides speak english
  • We start with a very playful garden for kids but also adults, then move to the most important step: the tasting! The explanations are clear to understand the manufacturing steps. Entrance €7 per adult and € 3 per child.

  • A small garden to start slowly... and then a workshop with a true enthusiast who tells us about the history and the transformation of cocoa. A must for foodies and curious (very surprising use of cocoa butter)

  • On the way to the airport we went here but luckily. It paid off in any case. We randomly got a private tour of a very nice person. It was a wonderful experience overall.
