The sun is shining, the cicadas are singing, and you're enjoying those long hours of well-deserved relaxation. And if you changed your pool/sunbathing habits a little to pay a visit to Manosque? The L'Occitane factory welcomes you from Monday to Friday for an unprecedented discovery of its manufacturing process in the heart of the intoxicating scents that have underpinned its success. Lavender, rose, almond... it’s like a dream.

First a small Provencal business created in 1976 by Olivier Baussan, L'Occitane is now known and respected worldwide. Centered on the natural benefits of plants from the South of France, it conquers the hearts of lovers of this region with its values as traditional as they are modern, and its demanding standards. And for good reason, who today can do without L'Occitane’s ultra moisturizing and environmentally friendly skin creams? Surely not you!

Luckily, after a tour of the magnificent 48,000m² site, you will not only get access to the L'Occitane museum, but also to the store that has all of your favorite products at preferential prices. Day creams perfect for dry skin, repairing after-sun milks, body oils… every product is available. An outing that, in addition to satisfying your curiosity about Provence, pampers your skin with small delights that ooze the South of France, and the sunshine. So, have we convinced you?
