Le Quillé, Ice Cream Maker in Miramas-Le-Vieux

About forty kilometers from Aix-en-Provence, the little medieval town of Miramas-Le-Vieux is a destination not to miss, for its beauty, but especially for its ice cream shop Le Quillé.
By Caroline Taret

With its panoramic view over the Étang de Berre, the village of Miramas-Le-Vieux is the perfect stop if you’re driving between Aix-en-Provence and Arles. Protected by its inhabitants, this flowery little town perched on a hill is famous throughout the region for its traditional ice cream and sorbet maker. This year Le Quillé, the charming specialist in artisanal ice creams and sorbets, celebrates its 30th birthday and has deliciously stood the test of time. Offering over 50 flavors, this ice cream maker is an institution headed by Raymond Dupas and his wife, as well as a faithful team of masters of the cone.

Or rather of the cup, since Le Quillé offers more than 80 ice-cream based desserts, from classics like Peach Melba to Poire Belle Hélène to house creations like the jasmine sorbet created exclusively for and by the jolly Raymond Dupas with La Maison de la Glace. This Marseille business and its new owner Fabrice Jaubert in collaboration with the Dupas create unique flavors, intimately tied to their region. A close collaboration, from the artisanal ice cream factory to their sophisticated and irresistible display on Le Quillé’s shady terrace. It’s certainly the best ice cream of your life.
