Welcome to your Artisan Chocolatier

You are a merchant, you hold a delicatessen, a pastry shop, or any other shop, our products are made for you!

Out of sight, at the bend of a path, on the roads of the Périgord noir, we prepare for you in the greatest secrecy, one of the famous specialties of the region: the Arlequines, delicious chocolate and cocoa nuts.

We established ourselves in the Dordogne in 1972 and since then, and as artisan chocolate makers we are committed to preparing quality products with respect for a certain ethic. We do not use any animal productsand no vegetable fats except cocoa butter.

Our range of specialties is made from nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, but also dried fruits, prunes, mangoes, grapes… as well as a few other flavours.

Chocolate is divine, soft, sensual, deep. Black, sumptuous, gratifying, powerful, dense, creamy, seductive, suggestive, rich, excessive, silky, soft, luxurious, heavenly…


Who are we

The Domaine de Béquignol is a craft business created in 1972 in Carlux, a small village in the Périgord Noir. Since that day, we have been committed to preparing products that are good, original, and of high quality.

The Domaine de Béquignol offers a wide range of chocolate candies, made from nuts such as walnuts or hazelnuts, or even dried fruits such as prunes or mangos.

Established in the Dordogne since 1972, the Domaine de Béquignol specialized in the transformation of walnuts, then transposed its know-how into chocolate/confectionery from 1980.

The Domaine de Béquignol is today an SME of 6 to 12 people, managed by Claude GINEBRE and his daughter Marion ZANATTA, for representation on 3 continents (Europe, Asia, America).

Is the mother of an Easter egg a chocolate hen?

Children’s Words

Happy chocolate, who after having traveled the world, through the smiles of women, finds death in a tasty and melting kiss from their mouths.

Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Chocolate is, of course, the stuff dreams are made of. Rich, dark, silky and sweet dreams that disturb the senses and awaken the passions.
