16th century. There is a long street below the older part,built on the foundations of a medieval street, made up of cafes, ateliers, potters shops, craft shops galleries etc. At the end of this is a cafe on a roundabout that seems to be the place to catch up and sip wine.
|This is the garden of the artist Roland Dutel|
|This was outside the artists house above.|
|A watering can calling all those who respond to such things outside a potters workshop, here was a strange collection of things including|
a shop mannequin in a bath, old iron bed heads welded together to create a small cafe seating area and a little arrangement below.

|This tall houses here face the market place and someone has busily gathered river stones and created a zen garden.|
|This is the island as you enter the village recognising the pottery tradition rather artily.|
