Very interesting view of genuine artisans making range of copper products from quality saucepans to baths. The video was informative. The price for the tour - like the items being themselves - was a bit on the pricey side. Still worthwhile though.

Villedieu-les-Poeles is meant to be the copperware centre of France. Many or the shops are rather tacky although the town itself is pleasant with plenty of parking. However Atelier du Culvre is not easy to find, being down a narrow alley near the top of...More
