In the intimacy of the cloisters of St. Genis des Fontaines, built from different coloured marble, white from Céret, pink from Villefranche- de-Conflent and black from the Corbières, the imaginations of 13th century sculptors created a series of fanciful men, beasts and plants atop the stone columns.

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….)

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.
