Mirmande

Mirmande’s houses lie hidden behind the village walls and are intertwined in a maze of alleyways ; they still retain their beautiful stone facades and old doors. After the disappearance of silkworm farming in the late 19C, fruit growing ensured Mirmande’s growth and fame as did the celebrities who stayed here : the painter André Lhote lived here and French geologist Haroun Tazieff was the mayor from 1979 to 1989.
