marystreetDurfort is the sweet village that La Cascade is located in.  The village has been making copperware since the Middle Ages and still continues to do so.  Behind the village square (which is lined with copper and other craft shops) are three streets of house.  I love the “human scale” of these streets with their lovely timbered fronts and flowers spilling out of boxes.  You can’t walk very far without seeing someone you know (or don’t know yet) who wants to say Bonjour and know who you are.  This is one of the most welcoming places I have ever been too!

If you would like to know more about this special part of France and the workshops I offer there, please email me! I’d love to share it with you.

Thanks to Mary Stickney for this picture!
