The Mas de La Bau was where you had to be on Thursday night 8/16/12, for our annual concert! Mathilde Giraud took us on a musical journey through different eras and styles, exploring all the musical possibilities of the harp. The 130 people who had found a place in our vaulted room then had ample opportunity to question the musician on her  fascinating instrument, during the "cup of friendship" that followed the concert. And all came away delighted with this show as much visual as aural.

June '12: Medieval feast in Céreste

Why not associate geographical and time travel? On June 2nd and 3rd, Céreste will live, dance, eat like in Middle Ages! The proximity of the Priory of Carluc and the old houses of the village justify this initiative of the municipal team, which plans for the birth of a Museum of the Middle Ages soon in Céreste.
Part of the festivities will take place on the esplanade of the Pont de La Baou, that is to say close to our house.

Art of May

In May, the artists of Céreste and the surrounding region will exhibit around a quote from Jean-Jacques Rousseau:
"Climates, seasons, sounds, colors, darkness, light, elements, food, noise, silence, rest, everything acts on our machine and our soul."
An original approach, and creations that will not be less original!

The musical evening held at the Mas de La Baou on August 17 was a success. Over 120 Cérestains and passing tourists responded to our invitation and enjoyed the remarkable performance of the Workshop Choir of St Martin de Castillon, a group of six singers who performed 17 polyphonic songs from Occitan, Corsican, Italian, Ukrainian, and Georgian oral tradition...
The framework of our large restored barn, with its impressive vaults, fitted perfectly to this musical expression, which takes its roots in the Mediterranean rurality.
The audience was spellbound. Our guests this week have been particularly well served with this concert at home!
The evening ended with a drink and a buffet.
