L'OCCITANE, A JOURNEY THAT STARTS IN PROVENCE

In the summer, Lily from lilypebbles.co.uk and Anna from theannaedit.com, took a journey to Provence, the heart of L’Occitane and this is what they discovered…

DAY ONE


It was a dream come true to be invited to explore Provence with L’OCCITANE where the brand originated.  We stayed in Le Couvent de Minimes Hotel & Spa L’OCCITANE, a beautiful, old monastery nestled in the heart of Provence and surrounded by rolling lavender hills.

It was such a privilege to meet Olivier Baussan, founder of L’OCCITANE, who chatted to us about the history of the brand and the products whilst the sun dipped beneath the lavender fields. It was truly breath taking!

DAY TWO


We were whisked off in our very own Citroen 2CV, the first car L’OCCITANE founder Olivier Baussan owned. The lavender fields in Provence are world renowned so we spent the morning driving from field to field.

After a traditional Provençal lunch in a beautiful French farmhouse-style kitchen, we ventured to the L’OCCITANE Spa where we enjoyed a treatment using signature ingredients such as rosemary and thyme….and relax! 

In the evening we went for a traditional dinner - the incredible view from our table overlooked the sprawling lavender fields. The perfect end to a magical trip!

We had such a wonderful time learning so much about L’OCCITANE and its roots in the Provence... Au revoir, until next time.
