Florian : Confiserie and Chocolaterie in Nice

Local Products


Founded in 1949, the Confiserie Florian in the Gorges du Loup sits in a breathtaking setting along the banks of the Loup river, in the lower hills of Grasse’s beautiful backcountry. Decorated with antique furniture from the South of France dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, both Confiserie Florian locations, Nice and Le Pont du Loup, are a blend of tradition, refinement, and taste. The quality of our products was honored in 1972 when we received the Coupe d’Or du Bon Goût Français, the “Gold Cup of French Good Taste.”

Encouraged by this flourishing success and after buying the famed Florian brand, Confiserie Florian in the Nice Old Town opened its doors in 1974 on Nice’s old port, the original home of the former Florian chocolate factory, well known to the people of Nice and the celebrated painter Matisse.


Both Confiserie Florian locations are in one of the most beautiful regions of France: the French Riviera. Throughout the year, the Confiserie Florian hosts visitors from around the world, giving them the chance to discover the sweet, wonderful world of our candied specialties from the South of France. During our free guided tours in five languages, you can witness the transformation of the region’s best fruits and most beautiful flowers into confectionery products. In wintertime, you’ll see us making citrus jams, hand-dipping orange peel into a variety of chocolates, and the glazing process for our candied fruits.


February through August is when we work with violets, the Tango rose, jasmine, and verbena, changing them into delicious crystallized flowers, leaves, or flower jams, all unique natural wonders for any sweets lover. Year round, you can watch us creating our homemade chocolates, caramels, and hard candies with the flavors of Provence. Each tour is followed by a free tasting and our vast array of specialties is available for purchase, should you so desire, at special factory prices.
