traditional fireplaces

28 May 2020
Fireplaces are at the heart of a household and allow us to wind back the clock. In south-western France, the d'Artagnan chimney takes us back to the 17th century. It's located at the castle of Castelmore, where the famous musketeer was born, in the Gers department. Meanwhile, at the foot of Castelnau-de-Montmiral, the fireplaces at the castle of Mayragues are lavishly decorated. Finally, in Montgaillard, a typical village of the Bigorre region, Jean-Louis's family fireplace brings back memories. With its wooden benches on either side, he loved to settle down there to read as a child.
