Yves Rocher welcomes you to La Gacilly, the village where he was born and the birthplace of the Yves Rocher brand name.
The Yves Rocher discovery tour is part of an effort to encourage economic growth and is the expression of the company's desire to participate in the development of tourism in Brittany.
 
"Le Végétarium"
 

WATCH, SMELL, TOUCH, LISTEN TO NATURE...

Visit the "Végétarium", the first museum of its kind in Europe entirely devoted to the plant kingdom. The "Végétarium" allows you to enjoy and understand the beauty and diversity of nature.

TAKE A STROLL

With its more than 1,000 plant species, the "Yves Rocher Botanical Garden" covers a surface area of 20,000 square meters. The Yves Rocher company invites you to discover its collection of plants used in food, medecine, perfume and also in industrial products such as dyes or fibres.
The "Yves Rocher Botanical Garden" is a member of the World Society for Nature and Botanical Gardens' Conservation (IUICN).

LEARN

Learn about the history of Yves Rocher. A life-size model of the family attic and contempory film tell the story of Yves Rocher's early days.
A 150 meter-long gallery provides a panoramic view overlooking the 2,600 square meter factory floor where audio-guides, films and photographs explain the various stages in producing plant-based beauty products.

ART, NATURE AND BEAUTY

Visit the life-size open-air photo exhibition in the heart of a maze created with ornamental plants and accented with natural fragrances. This year the exhibition is based on the theme of mountain scenes.
