Fruit au naturel
Figs, seaberries and almonds
Fruit flourishes in the generous sunshine of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and Les Figuières du Mas de Luquet are proof of the pudding… This vast fig grove produces over 150 varieties of fig and you can enjoy a delightful stroll before tasting the domain’s succulent produce. Another speciality – but Alpine this time – is seaberry juice. Thirty times richer in Vitamin C than orange juice, it has been used for centuries as a tonic for fatigue. Head over to Gayral to see the various production stages in action: harvesting, pressing, bottling and packing. And let’s not forget dried fruit! If you want to discover its secrets, don’t miss Perl’Amandes, a former almond crusher that has diversified its offering over the years, where you’ll learn everything there is to know about almond paste making.
