Follow André Fellay, caretaker of the collection and custodian of the “Ancienne Demeure” as you delve into this three-storey family home, exploring its modest wood-panelled rooms and the stove-scorched walls of its kitchen. Discover the domestic surroundings of a 19th-century family living in the alpine countryside. The past always seems close at hand here as you duck through low doorways and scale narrow stairways. Long-forgotten daily routines reveal themselves through the objects presented to you along the way: a rack for rye bread, a loom, a cobbler’s chair, traditional hats and a stunning “drawer bed”. The Ancienne Demeure, as well as the collection it has hosted since 1977, are the property of the No s’Atro Bon Bagna (“We the good people of Bagnes”) folk association.
