About Us


Welcome to AU SOLEIL, your number one source for classic, comfortable clothes. We're dedicated to giving our very best, with a focus on current trends, great prices and, above all giving you, our customer, a great experience.

Founded in 2014 by Virginia, Francesca and Georgia, AU SOLEIL has come a long way from its beginnings in Cotignac.

It all started when two enthusiastic teenagers were hampered in their summer job ambitions by their young ages. At 16 and 17, it would be impossible to get hired in southern France. Then we had a moment of inspiration. We could start our own business. So we launched our much loved boutique in the main street of our Provencal village.

After lots of  paperwork and a business loan from Mum (Virginia) and Dad, the girls opened for business in April 2014.

At the end of the summer it was time to return to studies so we reluctantly closed the doors.Time passed and both girls went on to other projects but the positive impact of Au Soleil stayed with us all. Years went by and the pull of relaunching AU SOLEIL grew stronger and stronger.

Roll on to January 2020 when a small "To let" sign appeared on the front of our original shop. It was meant to be! The shop has since reopened as a two person team. Virginia and Francesca are delighted to welcome you in person to our flagship store in Cotignac from April to October and online all year round. We are pleased to say that we now serve customers from all over the world.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you.
