Solange NERVI

Maison Telme Peyruis

« The Alpes de Haute Provence means taking pictures of almond blossom, wandering around the markets in summer, discovering the Gorges du Verdon by pedalo, riding your bike across the Valensole plateau on a July morning, taking your olives to the mill, observing the stars in Puimichel, eating a caillette and drinking a glass of red wine at the refuge de l’Estrop, breathing in the heady scent of sage in Castellard. »

Les Comtes de Provence Peyruis

« The human resources in this department are solid, and rely on a tradition of small businesses. Human know-how, commitment and stability are the values of the territory and the explanation for our lasting success in the Alpes de Haute Provence. The high quality of the products we make, the environment of a company under the Provencal sun and its family manufacturing work methods play a role in our attractiveness for recruiting competent executives and operators. »

PROMAN Manosque

« The A51 motorway goes through the department from north to south and puts us a few kilometres from the Aix-Marseille metropolis, the TGV high-speed train station and Marseille Provence International Airport. Easy access makes it easier to develop the business in France and overseas. In 25 years the company has grown from one agency in Manosque to 300 in Europe currently. »

Lothantique Peyruis

« Our family adventure began in the 1920s, at the foot of the Montagne de Lure with the plant and essential oil distillery followed by the creation of soaps and toilet waters. Lothantique, whose name was inspired by one of Marcel Pagnol's books, is now part of a structured network of cosmetic firms which promote Haute Provence and create outstanding products. »
