Quarry village houses
Of a quality that’s recognised across the world, the villagers began extracting the stone at the foot of the hill to build their house two centuries ago. And it’s since the 1940s that the activity has become increasingly important to the point that for some families, it’s their livelihood.
Since the 1970s, the quarries have been run on a more industrial basis. It’s a complete production cycle from stone-cutting to ornamental stonework (paving, interior or exterior decorative objects...).
Chassagne is a hard stone that can adapt to a range of uses. It comes in different shades and its warm colours are popular for decoration.
