These regional companies have been awarded a state of excellence label “EPV” and have a real philosophy of the transfer of skills, knowledge and French know-how.

Thus, the visitor will be able to admire various works made by a master lacquerer, restorers of antique books, watches, antique cars, saddlery, stained glass windows, but also manufacturers of lanterns, flutes, musical instrument cases, bicycle frames, tools for working the ground, a megissier…
