Peille: Coffee Chez Gaby
An early morning stop for two cyclists outside Au Petit Cabanon in Place Carnot in Peille. That's the adorable patron, Gaby, serving coffee. Isn't this square heaven!
A short history of the village: It's thought the area was once home to a little-known Ligurian tribe the Oratelli of Peille.
The village dates back to the 11th century and is of Celto-Ligurian origin. In 1388 Peille passed to the Savoy, and later became the responsibility of the Sardis states in 1720, returning to French rule in 1792. From 1814 to 1860, it was part of kingdom of Piedmont and Sardinia and finally became French in 1860.
