One of the most remarkable attractions of the village is the number of craftsmen who work there and bring back to life before your eyes many trades that have become very rare. Their friendliness will amaze you. Some of them have planned to run workshops and pass on their know-how to you.

The Baker comes specially to bake bread in his stone oven right before your eyes. Tasting sessions.

Basketweaving, interwoven sheaves of wheat… items and trinkets made by nimble fingers. And now, your turn to try!

The Master Blacksmith, no one can do it like him: in a snap, old-style nails and lucky-charm horseshoes.

The Cutler, can create decorations on the back of a knife or blade… bold patters appreciated by our grandparents will make your knives unique.

The Potter
, and her hands gradually shape pitchers, vases, jars, which she then decorates skilfully. You can learn to “throw” from her if your heart tells you to.
