    We spend a pleasant time at the cocoa House. We have learned many things and tasting is really nice. We were with our girls, 9 and 11 years who have enjoyed also. We highly recommend this tour.

    Visit the home of great chocolate. The garden is small but interesting with small quizzes. Forte explanations and tasting after a visit to the garden. You learn a lot and the flavour of the cocoa is just delicious. In the end a desire to buy everything. I highly recommend this tour.

    A small garden to visit alone certainly pretty with some cocoa then an explanation / tasting with a really not nice guide. Avoid. ..

    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!

    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.
