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. In order to taste without waiting, we also offer a place of conviviality to share a pastry with a drink in our tea room. La Maison du Fruit Confit is a must in Provence !
