Overview
More
PUYODEBAT'S chocolate factory was born of passion and work of Valérie and Christophe PUYODEBAT in Bayonne, rue d'Espagne, in 1999. Nevertheless they were cramped in the center of the city so they decided with the support of Cambo-les-bains local council in 2009, the opening of a 'Chocolate Factory-Museum-Shop concept' on more than 700 square meters, following the marks of the two biggest chocolate factories in bask country, the Maison Fagalde and the Maison Noblia. Christophe PUYODEBAT, craftsman and chocolate-maker, but non-descended from chocolate-makers families have been looking since 1999 to promote local artisans, traditional values and direct professional relationships with local producers all around the world (Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, Dominican Islands, etc.) He came from Lourdes and he rubbed shoulders with famous chocolate-makers in Paris, so quite naturally, he decided to pay tribute to them through discoveries and creations today in the Bask-Country, capital of chocolate. Chocolate lollipops, chocolate with Espelette's hot chili pepper spread, craquinette (homemade specialty) and other products are waiting for you!

Fun to see the history of chocolate and the sample tasting at the end of the self-guided tour was excellent. Really tempted us to find a spot in our overpacked luggage for a few samples!

We knew that our forbears were the Fagalde family who were largely responsible for the foundation of the chocolate industry in Cambo les Bains back in the 1800's but we were not prepared to see the really excellent display of family photos and general chocolate...More
