CHOCOLATERIE MAISON DUPLANTEUR

A CHOCOLATE FACTORY IN HISTORIC DOWNTOWN GRASSE !

There’s something new in Grasse !

This chocolate factory and shop, tucked in the very heart of the city of fragrances and flavors, is committed to fair trade.

The beans come from Sierra Leone, Madagascar, Ghana, Peru, and Bali, and everything is processed here on site : Duplanteur alone roasts, grinds, refines, and manufactures the chocolate it sells.

The master chocolatier uses organic products – even the sugar is organic !

La Maison Du Patrimoine

The CDM hosts exhibition spaces and educational workshops: essential and inseparable elements of heritage mediation, core business of the national network of Cities and Countries of Art and History (VPAH). You will also find the whole of the Pole Mediation (lecturers and administrative guides), the Inventory Pole (Research on movable heritage, monumental and intangible), a documentation center and a presentation of the VPAH network.

Jardin des Orangers

Located at the foot of the wall of the city of Grasse, this garden was created in 1779 by Joseph Amable Arnouphle de Pontevès, the first owner of the site, and remodeled by the City in 1976.
Pauline Bonaparte, Princess Borghese, tasted the charms of her geometrically patterned parterres, her pond, her orange trees and her rose bower during a stay in 1811, when she was the host of the Amic family.

Parfumerie Bouchara

The creators
A common passion...

Two emblematic successes (Théosiris and Eau de Grasse), creative spirit, attention to detail, irrefutable expertise as part of the family of great French perfumers: these elements and more make Guy Bouchara and Lynne truly uncommon creators. Each perfume bears their unmistakable signature. When you leave with a bottle of their fragrances, you take a part of them with you. A warm, exclusive welcome awaits you at Bouchara.
