Our expertise


La maison du fruit confit is located in the heart of the Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon in Apt. Its proximity to orchards enables us to offer fruit sourced directly from Provence, such as bigarreau cherries from Luberon, melons and watermelons from Cavaillon, and rosé apricots from Provence. Other fruits come mainly from France, such as figs, plums, pears and clementines from Corsica. For supply reasons, there are a few exceptions, such as oranges and lemons from Italy and Spain, and exotic fruits (kiwi, pineapple, ginger) from all over the world.

A symbol of living heritage

The craftsmanship and excellence of La Maison du Fruit Confit were rewarded in 2017 and renewed in 2023 with the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label, a guarantee of quality and a unique cultural heritage.
