The most unique feature of Bresse farms is most definitely the mysterious ‘Saracen’ chimneys, that can still be seen on some of them today. These treasures can only be found in Bresse.
A legend of Bresse
Have you ever heard of Maria, the storyteller from Sougey ?
If the answer is no then we’re going to do something about that. Maria Favier is a legend from Bresse, born in 1911 in Saint-Jean-sur-Reyssouze. She devoted her life to making a name for the heritage sites of Bresse, in particular to Sougey Farmand the protected woodland area in Montrevel-en-Bresse. Georges Blanc and Paul Bocuse came to visit her. Valéry Giscard d’Estaing even invited her to the Garden Party at the Elysée. What a legend !
