Hi,


 

A few that I know:

Benoît Fradette  le Farinoman Fou

5, rue Mignet, 13100 Aix-en-Provence

farinomanfou.fr

One of the very best bakeries in France, period. Organic flours, breads with levain, long fermentations, some crazy/very original breads too. Not to be missed.

 

La Paline

Benoît BABINGER
22 Rue Longue Androne, 04200 Sisteron

http://lapaline.fr

Also organic flours / levain / long fermentations. Changed hands not long ago, but same baking team.

 

La Fabrique à Pain

4 rue Pierre de Coubertin, 13100 Aix-en-Provence

http://lafabriqueapain.com/

New bakery from the guy who used to run La Paline above. Same philosophy.

 

Jean-Paul Veziano

2, rue de la Pompe, 06600 Antibes

lepain-jpv.com

More a classic French bakery, nice local breads (fougasse, main de Nice...)

 

If you are planning to go a bit further North to the  Lyon area, I can provide a few addresses there.

If you go much further North to Paris (where I live and work),  I know many interesting bakeries, some of which I have worked for. Feel free to contact me.

Have a nice trip,

Philippe, baker in Paris
