Just ring before visiting the maker of the bells
Those who have been in the mountains can dream the sound of cow bells. In Nay, a tiny village at the feet of the Pyrenees, Jean Daban doesn't have to dream. He makes them every day again, just like his ancestors did starting in 1795. Bells for sheep or horses are no problem either.
In modern days, you may order the bells online. What the website doesn't tell, is that Jean happily shows his workshop and tells about his craft. They told so in the local tourist office, which is not to find on the Internet, but in a remarkable renaissance house at the Place de la Republique.
Jean recieves guests on Saturday afternoon and Monday after. But please, make a call first, because he welcomes you on appointment only. The number: 00 33 - (0)5 59 61 00 41.
