On the corner of rue Saint Nicolas, the Orée du Maquis is intriguing. Two small open doors catch the eye of passers-by and invite them to go down into this very special cellar.


On the left, stills and strange machines are used to make the drinks displayed on the right. Liqueurs, aperitif wines, creams are lined up here like magicians’ potions. Shades of amber, copper, light or dark, all colours are used to awaken the imagination. But ultimately, it is the taste buds that are awakened during the tasting that Jean-Jacques and Stéphanie Lovichi propose to all visitors. The numerous bottles, shapes and smells, the wooden shelves, the friendly welcome of the proprietors encourage you to try everything: chestnut or melon cream, hazelnut liqueur from Cervione or, more classically, Myrtle wine or lemon liqueur, the local flavours are skilfully processed to offer quality local products.

An atypical address made of original recipes. Not to be missed.
