La Creche


Pascal setting up the "Creche" our traditional nativity display ...First the rock paper ; the more you crush it the more real it looks . Keep it years after years , it gets better and better !

Our figurines or "santons" are all hand made and hand painted in Aix en Provence by the Fouque family workshop a 3 generation business . We love their santons the best  and think they not only have the best details but also the most unique figurines like the men walking in the Mistral or Cezanne painting the St Victoire mountain . Make sure you come to check it out and bring the kids !
