From father to son, on Charentais soil
for seven generations

The family

Philemon Cabanne - Marcel Cabanne - Amanda Cabanne

The heritage

In 1810, François Cabanne left his hometown La Vienne with his wife and his first two children to settle down in Charente. His eldest son who was bearing the same first name, in 1839 married a lady from Bourg-Charente and lived in Chez Genin. From that day, the family house, which has seen the birth of many family members, has been passed down from generation to generation. And it became evident that it was the most suitable place for headquarter of the company.
