The mountains, the river, the neighboring hills of Tourrettes and Bar-sur-Loup, the perched village of Gourdon, fresh air, cool breezes, the perfumes of Grasse...the Confiserie Florian in the Gorges du Loup is in a unique setting and climate, a high country of mild Mediterranean winters and glorious summers, so rural in ambiance that it feels like a confectionery in the country.

Guides Tours

During a free guided tour, you will follow the different stages of manufacture of our artisanal specialties such as citrus jams, confit flowers, crystallized flowers, orange and lemon barks with sugar or chocolate , Acid candy or candied fruit glaze ...
The visit ends with a tasting of our gourmet products with the possibility of making your purchases at factory prices.

Five gourmet workshops

At the foot of the viaduct, away from the river’s roar and the traffic noise from the road linking Tourettes to Bar-sur-Loup, sits a family home with grand rooms and Provencal period furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries, alongside candy-making facilities, where the best fruit and the most beautiful flowers of the French Riviera are transformed into delectable treats: clementines and tangerines from Vallauris, Menton lemons, bitter and bergamot oranges from Nice, roses, jasmine, and violets from the Grasse region...

Crystallized flowers are made in the first workshop. Those with a sweet tooth eat them straight from the bag, while others use them as inspiration calls, decorating ice cream, mousses, or pastries.
The second workshop, where each operation requires patience and precision, is where we glaze our candied fruit and make our jams.
The third workshop is the candy kingdom, where hard candies are made, a sweet spectacle that brings an excited sparkle to the eyes of children visiting the Confiserie.
Next comes the chocolate factory, where candied orange and lemon peels are dipped by hand, one by one, into delicious dark, white, or milk chocolate with crushed hazelnuts.
In the last room, our products are packed into handmade Provencal baskets, for our candied fruits, or small bags for our crystallized flowers, coffee beans, Provencal almonds, or chewy caramels in four scrumptious flavors...
