The story of a Family and Flavours
At 30 minutes from Avignon and 20 minutes from Gordes, for over 30 years the SILVAIN family nougat factory, which bears the label Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant, has been making confectionery which places fruit, almonds and honey in the limelight.
The story of the SILVAIN family, from a line of peasant farmers, is closely linked to this Provencal area lying between the plain of the Comtat Venaissin, Mont-Ventoux and Luberon.
