The candied fruit's house

The Candied Fruit Museum, located within La Maison du Fruit Confit (or the house of candied fruit) shop, offers visitors the chance to enter into and explore their workshops. Visitors are welcomed into a discovery and exhibition area containing old machines, historical documents, an olfactory and taste trail as well as videos accompanied by explanatory panels. Our company museum presents the history of know-how and confectionery techniques from ancient times to the present day.Visits are possible every day at 10:30 am.Opening of the shop from Monday to Saturday from 09:30 to 12:30 and from 14:00 to 18:30.

In 1962, several Apt confectioners' family businesses decided to form a cooperative: it was the birth of Aptunion. It was not until 1988 that the factory shop was born, first named Les Fleurons d'Apt, which today became La Maison du Fruit Confit. The shop, within the premises of Aptunion's production workshops, offers direct sales of candied fruits and Provençal specialties. The museum space transports the visitor to the world of candied fruit in the heart of the Luberon. This modern and multimedia discovery course stimulates the 5 senses.

If you get there a little early, get straight to tasting with a pastry and a drink in the cosy tea room. La Maison du Fruit Confit is a must-see in Provence!
