Marie-Emilienne our designer has imagined a place where you can unwind and live your passion for sewing.

Imagine yourself wandering the little streets of a magnificent village in Burgundy full of romantic 15th century houses.

After entering the village through the fortified gate, loosing yourself in the windy paved streets admiring the old timbered houses, you fall instantly in love with the village.
