Chestnut

 

taillis de châtaignierPièce de bois équarrieThe frame for our buildings is made of chestnut

coming from the coppiced woodland of Limousin.

 

Traditionally the small chestnuts are used by the

Limousin farmers for stakes, fences or furniture.

 

We use trees that are 15 to 20 years old whose

diameter is wide enough to draw our timber

wood from it.

 

The majority of our supplies is certified with

with the environmental quality control label

PEFC.
