Chocolate Museum

Enter an amazing chocolate factory!

The visit of a unique place in Périgord

Valter BOVETTI, craftsman chocolate maker, makes you share his passion by making you discover everything of this magic product that is the chocolate.
The history of the cocoa from the Mayas to its arrival in Spain then in France.

From the cocoa bean to the chocolate : the work in the plantations of cocoa trees to the « post-harvest » steps. The processing steps in the industries illustrated by old machines (roasting, crushing…).
The workshop where you attend the manufacturing of the chocolate. The children make a chocolate moulding they take back home in the original mould they can use again.

Tasting of Grand Crus and several specialities of the chocolate factory.

The greenhouse where you can see cocoa trees.

Our chocolate factory meets the European standards of hygiene and food safety.

Dès que vous entrez dans cet endroit magique, vos yeux, vos papilles, votre odorat sont en alerte. Attention tu vas craquer!!!
Pour avoir gouter à de nombreuses spécialités de Mr BOVETTI, je peux vous assurer que l'on devient accro.
Ses chocolats noirs sont tous plus envoutant les uns que les autres, ses pâtes à tartiner impressionnantes de saveurs.
Quand à l'accueil, toujours charmant et chaleureux.
En un mot ne ratez pas l'occasion de vous y rendre, de déguster et de vous faire plaisir.

aurais je la chance de retrouver le marteau, les clous etc qui avaient fait l'originalité des chocolats Bovetti, un magnifique coffret et une idée cadeau appréciée
