Fodor's Expert Review L'Occitane

Forcalquier Factory

Nine kilometers (15 miles) south of Forcalquier is Manosque, home to the famed L'Occitane factory, a leading purveyor of lavender magic. Manosque is certainly not a draw on its own, but a trip here is worth it for a visit to the cosmetics and skin-care company that is now the town's main employer. Once you make a reservation, you can take a two-hour tour of the production site, view a documentary film, visit the museum and gardens, then stock up on L'Occitane products at the company shop.
