Arrived at 9:45 for tour at 10:30. There was another extra scheduled at 10:10 which was great. We managed to park in the factory courtyard, but you should be able to park by the sports centre nearby otherwise. Tour was in French. We were given...More
We came to this visit hoping to see the making of the famous soap. The place has a huge history and great potential. Maybe because it is the middle of august the tour was of pretty much empty rooms. Only French spoken. Overall a limited...More
This is a really modest museum, but it is interesting to see how the soap is made and learn a bit about the history of the soapmaker. Given that it is free, it is well worth dropping in. And the gift shop is excellent!
For who never wondered how soap is made from A to Z, the factory visit is very interesting, free and lasts 40 minutes. It is possible to park in their courtyard (we realised it afterwards...). Closed on Sundays.

Hi Salon de Provence is a good drive from Nice...maybe 2 hours on a good day! You are only 20 mins from Avignon - Salon by motorway.There are many nice places to stay not far from Avignon which would be easier to visit Salon but if you are only here for one day you have to weigh up the driving! Good luck Escargot
