This innovative online ‘living map’ has been created as a labour of love during the last five years by Martin Freeth. It incorporates 37 films. The watercolour map of the village of Labastide d’Armagnac in South West France, was made by Martin’s brother, Richard Freeth. The map has already increased footfall and trade in the vilage.

Visitors to the site explore the village by moving their cursors over the map which includes blue and red shapes. With each blue blob, text information appears. With each red building or site, a short film, averaging about two and a half minutes, runs. These were all directed, shot and edited by Martin Freeth an experienced British documentary film maker (see for more).

The best way to explore the map is to go to the website : and then take your own tour of the village. All the films and texts are in French, but they are subtitled or translated into English. The traders, armagnac producers, churches, restaurants, shops, artists and craftspeople of the village are all included.



While the best way to enjoy the map is to explore it in your own way (by clicking on, we have listed separate web addresses and durations for all 37 short films below.
