Basse Copette: some history The hamlet, set in the Forêt d’Eu, has only a handful of residences - but has not let history pass it by. Today the hamlet is too small to be marked on most maps of France, and it does not appear by name on any satellite navigation systems or internet mapping services. I have found the hamlet included on a map made of the area just before the Revolution (i.e. 1789).
Basse Copette on Wikipedia.fr Doing a Google search for 'Basse Copette' the other day, I found an article on the French version of Wikipedia that mentions Basse Copette. The article, created by Christian Lassure and with many additions by Dr Michel Royon, will be of particular interest to those interested in geology, geography and agricultural history.
Basse Copette in the snow, January 2009 For me Basse Copette always looks great under a few inches of snow. I think it has something to do with the surrounding forests and the dusting of snow on the trees. After a week of subzero temperatures (-6) I woke up this morning to snow, and by lunch there was at least two inches (photos below taken today). After a walk in the snow there is nothing nicer than coming into a roaring fire.
