A Normandy Chocolatier
To celebrate World Chocolate Day let’s visit a Normandy chocolatier. In Granville there are two outlets for Yver Chocolatier who make exquisite chocolate creations for every occasion.
In the centre of Granville is the shop À La Marquise de Presles. It’s at 26 rue Lecampion. This is one of their chocolate counters.
They also make delicious melt-in-the-mouth macarons.
And as if that wasn’t enough, they also have a range of delicious pâtisserie.
The quality is excellent and if you’re looking for a present or to treat yourself, then this Normandy chocolatier is the place to go. There’s even an ice-cream parlour next door during the summer months. You can buy ice creams to take away or you can choose from the eat-in menu. There’s also an Yver ice cream kiosk just by the casino in Granville. It’s usually open late in the summer. There’s a promenade right next to the kiosk so you stroll and enjoy your ice cream at the same time. Or take your ice cream to the beach.
A little further out of town towards Yquelon is La Chocolathèque where you can discover the origins and history of chocolate by taking a tour in French. This shop also sells a wide range of delicious chocolates as well as macarons. They are at 189 route de Villedieu and have onsite parking.
Their website is here. You can drool over their entire range of chocolates, chocolate nibbles, macarons and pâtisserie without consuming a single calorie. Yver Chocolatier have been making chocolates since 1946.
