Jour de Fete

Jour de Fête 1947-2007
60th Anniversary

The wonderful comedy, and now famous film, set in the historic and quiant town of Sainte Sévère, allows audiences to see some of this beautiful region. The success of the film is owed to the great French actor Jacques Tati, whose performance is second to none.
Locations around Sainte Sévère were used in the film, one of which being Le Marembert, where the local bar allowed the residents to enjoy leisure time.
During the second world war, Jacques Tati, spent two years in this hamlet and frequented the bar. Even after the war had ended, he returned with his family to holiday, and in 1947 made his now famous film, showing great respect for the people of this area. Today, the bar is a Chambres d'Hotes or Bed and Breakfast. Renamed "LES CARILLONS". Under the ownership of David and Linda Poole, who offer a welcome to people from around Europe, where they can relax and enjoy the tranquil setting of the region.
