Fine crafts to update your decor
On Virginie Tollardo’s farm in the Mercantour, bees are the queen of the show. The mountain beekeeper makes cold-saponified soaps with the produce of her hives and wild and cultivated plants. Next to Le Savon du Mercantour, you’ll find some delicious culinary creations such as honey or gingerbread. La Maison de Produits de Pays des Alpes du Verdon, located in a restored former sheepfold in Beauvezer, is home to a specialized grocery full of 100% local products: decoration, felted wool-knitting, jewellery, candles and wax, cosmetics, images and books, pottery and ceramics and even clothing. They are all the work of passionate producers and craftspeople from the Verdon and the Valensole Plateau.
