    Favorite thing: be amazed by the work of the FACTEUR CHEVAL (cheval = horse)

    Fondest memory: During several years, he built his palace : a mix of Asian Temple, castle, fort he had seen on engravements, books or news papers. The result : a building with a terrace, stairs and statues. As he worked during the day as a postman, he built his Palace partly by night with a candle on his kepi to have light.

    Favorite thing: visit the 'POSTMAN CHEVAL'S IDEAL PALACE' at Hauterives.

    Fondest memory: During his life, CHEVAL (it is his name) collected stones or shells found on the soil during the mail distribution and brought them at home. After years of gathering, he decided to set up a ... (how I call it) ... 'thing' in his garden in front of his house, using what he had collected and concrete.
