The Baumanière Chocolate Factory

This year, Baumanière has imagined a new gourmet stopover for you! Discover our chocolate factory just a stone’s throw from Saint Rémy de Provence, at the foot of the village of Les Baux de Provence. Located opposite the three Michelin starred Oustau de Baumanière restaurant and connected to the Place des Artisans, the Baumaniere chocolate factory combines authenticity and modernity. Brandon Dehan, our Pastry Chef at l’Oustau de Baumanière, elected best pastry chef in 2020, officiating alongside the Chef de cuisine Glenn Viel – supported by the owners Jean-André and Geneviève Charial, takes up the challenge of proposing his vision of chocolate through his creations where the praline is his signature. Julien Despaquis, our Chef Chocolatier, a participant in the M6 show “Le meilleur pâtissier – les professionnels”, combines exception and passion in his chocolate creations. Together, in collaboration with Valrhona and Nicolas Berger, they put their know-how to good use in order to offer you tasty chocolates for a true journey of the senses.


You will soon find on our online shop a selection of gourmet tablets and pure origin tablets (Cuba, Sao Tomé, Ecuador, Vietnam…), boxes of sweets or confectionery according to the seasons… Brandon has also created some surprising sweets, “Les Cigales”, gourmet sweets made with the aromatic plants of the Alpilles: basil, thyme, wild fennel, rosemary, lavender, savory. Enough to delight the taste buds of amateurs and connoisseurs alike!
