Post 9. Fountain

It’s hard to leave the neighbourhood of the House of the Bourgeoisie without bending down to savour a few sips of the cool water of the fountain.

Here, we say “the basin” and its water flows all year. There are several in the village. These basins were put in place in 1918 along with fire hydrants.

Before then, there was only one wooden basin in Saint-Jean d’enhaut.

Our friends speak of a former bisse (irrigation-canal) which is just below the fountain. Let’s go to the car park and the gate of the stream and follow the path that leads to the stable.
