If you wish to display/sell at a vide-grenier, you will normally need to register in advance and show some proof of identity when registering. More information on how to do this from the town hall or tourist office in the commune where the vide-grenier is taking place.

Coming from the French word terre for “soil,” the word terroir originally described the special characteristics of a region, or piece of land, which gave different varieties of wine, coffee and tea their individuality. (Soil, climate, position, regional traditions….)

In Spring 1905, Henri Matisse landed in Collioure, searching for light and a new style of painting. It was in Colioure that he painted the famous Open Window, with vibrant colours and reflexions that did not fit in with the expected – vermillion masts of blue boats floating on pink waves below a sky of turquoise, and pink.
