Found the small museum worth a visit. Lots of English translations which is helpful. Audi visuals not too long. Shop good. We missed the factory tour. We were too late that afternoon. Signage giving directions is not good.

In main shop, when you buy for almost 100 euro, you wouldn't receive any samples. But in odinary shop in any other city, you will definetly get few samples. It's a pity(

Beautiful garden, easy parking. Not a huge amount to do but worth a look in if you are in the local area.

I use many of their products and we had a spare afternoon, so the owner of our bnb called over for us to reserve a place. That's the only way to get a reservation, I think. We got a freebie lip tube, yay!

We were totally disappointed when we found out there was no tour scheduled for that day! I felt that the small museum was informative, but a tour would have made the day worthwhile. All of the products were pricy even in the boutique...no sales! I...More

We booked the free factory tour in English on a Saturday, and while there was no production it was still interesting to have the step by step explanation and walk through of key areas of the factory. Also, we got to try some samples and...More

We spent an hour each way in a car whilst in glorious sunshine making our way to and from this glorified factory unit in a mostly industrial town. Shattered are my illusions of a Provençal cottage industry manufacturing these products...and if you think you'll pick...More
