We paid 8 euro 20 and spent almost an hour with the chef d'equipe who is fun and interesting and totally passionate about his work. Well worth it if you can understand a little French. This guy has worked there since the age of 16...More
At one time, this was a city of large copper production. After visiting the tourist information office, I was directed to go here to view copper production as it is today. An 8 euro entrance fee allowed me to view a movie on copper production...More
A surly girl took 8 euros each from us, led us through the workshop to a dingy room where she switched on a film from about 1980 which showed the various processes involved in making a copper pan.

We tagged onto the tail end of a French -speaking tour, so didn't understand everything. The video had English translation, and we enjoyed walking around the foundry seeing the artisans at work. I shall always look for their trademark on copper pans in future! It...More
I recently purchased a set of saucepans from this french copper artisan in order to test them out for several restaurant ventures. Dylan was a charm to work with and Patiently answered all my questions so based on that level of service we decided to...More
