  • I have ordered several times different products online and I n "have never been disappointed by delivery or the quality of the products. Soaps are ideal for those with skin allergies, the balsams are very effective and relaxing, the fragrances are very nice especially pink and Christmas. Thanks to the community of Ganagobie for their products of excellence.

  • The Priory and the plateau dominating the region with its Oaks are worth visiting. A must see. Nice course.
