About us

In one of the “most beautiful villages in France”, an ancestral tradition continues with its salt worker Sébastien Rossignol.

On this southernmost salt marsh of the French Atlantic coast, Sébastien perpetuates a know-how that is neither easy nor easy. Pulling the coarse salt and picking the fleur de sel are the daily actions for harvesting white gold.
