“A specialty of over 200 years Part of local cultural heritage, the Four des Navettes has recognized historical value, but its true value lies in the gourmet attachment and the rituals associated with these shuttles. The Four des Navettes is the oldest bakery in Marseille, located on the sacred road that leads to the Saint Victor Abbey. For more than 200 years, the secret of the Navette recipe has been jealously guarded and the three owners of the Four des Navettes since its creation in 1781 have passed on the exclusivity of know-how. It is a delicacy in the shape of a boat that invites you on a delicious journey. Golden like an ear of wheat in the sun, slightly sweet, delicately scented with orange blossom, its texture is surprising and has surprises in store for you.
