Season 3: A combloran through time

Jean-Loup is a 16-year-old combloran. He loves his life in the village: friends, skiing, football and trips to the biotope during the holidays. His family runs a very old sawmill in the Beauregard mountain pasture. Generations pass but woodworking remains. Moreover, some members of the family display a very distinctive and mysterious sign: a compass around their neck. To obtain it, it is necessary to respect a family tradition, but Jean-Loup does not hear it that way and argues with his family. What follows is a journey through time, filled with adventures...

Season 2: The Mystery of Akelaloupis

In 1924, Combloux was a popular place for high society. All of Paris gathers there, to enjoy unbridled holidays, breathe the fresh air, and initiate with the means at hand what will one day become “winter sports”. During a prestigious ball at the Grand Hôtel, a jewel of inestimable value was stolen from Princess Joséphine DeChanteloup La Tanière: the Akelaloupis. This extremely pure crystal, cut in the shape of a wolf's head, would possess magical virtues. Caught in his escape, the thief sowed clues of the hiding place in the form of riddles before disappearing. Today, the crystal is still there, hidden somewhere in Combloux for 95 years...

Also find the Légendes de Combloux podcasts on the various listening platforms.

Season 1: The Wolf Combe

For this 1st edition of the Legends of Combloux, the chosen theme was “La Combe aux Loups”. The expression Combe aux Loups is traditionally used to explain the etymological root of Combloux.

A combe, with wolves... nothing better to imagine a staging around this animal and its evocations! Besides, perhaps you saw a certain Marcel Mitraille passing through the streets of Combloux? It seems that this one is looking for the wolf...
