The studio

I haven't been in the houses of La Perigouse. I don't want to trespass. Is the missing location, we see in so many episodes of season 3 fake or real? Since 2020 we know it. It's both.

Maybe that's why it was so difficult. We have seen surreal worlds like a cave in Fear, at first we thought of a studio but this was real. Now we saw fake walls but also real walls and that

confused us. This farm had a kind of flexible roof covering. It looks like a large piece of cloth put over the wooden frame. In this town are many roofless houses. You can see it on the map

above. It wasn't the first time they've created large projects like: the large fake-stone projects, the entrance gate to the wasteland. They also made wells and statues to decorate scenes.


Episode Gansari's Zombies

The way to Balric (episode 57) Gansari's Zombies. Scene: Gansari and his 'children' are heading to Balric, right after Tell.  In Balric Tell

meets Zanthe's sister, Wanda. She is hiding for Gansari and tries to reach her brother. Gansari is in love with her. She desperately wants her

brother, Zanthe to find peace again. When she meets Tell, they both get involved. No time to escape now, the zombies have just arrived.....



Northwest of La Perigouse - Some small changes, but still so pretty

                The door is replaced by glass, the wooden fence is changed into an iron one. In my opinion it's done pretty well. It still looks nice, (I've seen worse ;)         


1988 Notice the element on the foot of the stairs...I never noticed before...                      2017                       

Scene: Wanda aims her bow at Tell. When Tell comes from another side than she had expected, she begs not to kill her

She tells him her story about the major threat in this village. Location: The girl is standing on the map between 2 and 3.


The place below you can find by going upstairs and walk around the corner. You can see it on the map. Tell walks from nr. 7 to 3

                                                                                                            When I was there I haven't seen these wooden carriers attached to houses.

   2017 behind Tell you see the corner of the left house (house 12)                     1988                        2017 (Looking  from nr 13 to 15. In the back building A)


                                       1988 The impressive porch, still beautiful!           2017 looking from nr. 6, 4 to 3. The bow on the left is pointed as nr. 5                    



This zombie stood in front of the tiny house nr. 2 (left of the 'balcony stairs') On this spot Wanda meets Tell as well. Nowadays It's a little hotel.

            1988     The building with the balcony stairs, the zombies walked out.       2017      

The zombies walking on the balcony stairs of the house you see below. It's in opposite of the beautiful arcade porch.

                                                                                                  Number 4 on the map      This building is at the right of Tell, behind the man with the barrel.


Not a clear map, but the clearest I could get. if you ever visit the village I'm sure you can easily orientate.

The centre of the old town of Perigouse 

2017 the house left of Tell, not visible next to Tell, but the wall is.


Here the house had already a huge crack.

2017 Amazing to discover small indications of modern times in this old town (the guesthouse for instance, it's situated on the left) sure will have internet access and

the range of the mobile phone will be fine as well. Behind me some cars....but this feels amazing. Oke can disagree about it, some will say it's messy, perhaps a bit neglected..

the buildings have been affected by time and weather but it looks in a certain way authentic old to me. I appreciate those villages. It has so many beauty things in it!

If you like photography, nature, culture and discovery, these are beautiful places to wander for hours. (While visiting please have respect for the residents, private places and their properties!)

The hunt through town

Scene: She is hunted down through the town. The zombies are appearing everywhere, they even come through the floor and demolish doors!


Will she succeed in reaching her brother? There seems no escape. Even not for Tell.


  STUDIO, partially farmhouse

While scrolling through my La Perigouse folder, I found a hidden overgrown shed behind the cross I photographed. I didn't think it could have been the studio.


The left photo, was my first photo of the studio, but I couldn't see the similarities C. Petit was able to see. I visited it and draw me a great map of the Studio.

The wasteland in 'The Bounty Twins'

(a mix of Causse Sauveterre and La Perigouse STUDIO in Lozere)

Location: An impression of the episode. The village is known to us but the field isn't yet.

In this episode, William is captured by a Siamese twin and retained as a prisoner in the unknown place. It is supposed to be in a hamlet called "La Périgouse", where the "Gansari's Zombies"

episode also took place. The twins are taking care for a girl 'Alana' and protect her and she cares for them. Her father is looking for her, but they won't let her be taken away.






A dry and sandy wasteland. A large dust cloud is approaching. The Bounty twins are coming. Tell takes cover behind a rock and observes them.

The twins ride on and the dust clouds disappears. Tell notices he is followed by a man.  He sees the man standing by his stuff and seems to be looking for Tell.


Tell first thinks he is a thief. "Found what your looking for?"


The brothers are approaching

I think a small town behind, perhaps a town I already know.. I see roofs and cypresses. But we can't place it yet..

Scene: "Doolan is the name: hunter, tracker, Guide! You're going into the wasteland?" Tell: "Across" Doolan: "Not many people try that." Tell: "Is there anything that

would stop them?" Doolan: "sand and sun." Tell: For what brings you here? Doolan is silent and looks in the distance doubting about what to tell. Tell: "What is the best way?

Straight through or around? I will pay you of course." "Alright, Follow me." Scene: Dolan is on the outlook. Tell: "What's the matter Dolan? Like you have said yourself there

is nobody around here for miles around." Dolan: "It's all right." Tell sees the man worrying and repeat: "It's alright?!" Tell realizes the man is worried but he won't share it with him.

Tell: "What do you hunt down, Dolan? You don't h ave a weapon nor horse..." I'm running like a horse." "Yeah I can't keep up with you."


The brothers spotting their fire and ride straight to Doolan and Tell. Doolan is suddenly gone. Doolan seems is hiding behind a rock and watch the brothers taking Tell away.


Alana visits Tell

Scene: Alana visits Tell in prison. "I'm Alana priestess of the noble...of the wasteland  of the illustrious bounty twins who's blood is mingled with the blood of wolves, of the patched

earth. This is their land, kingdom. I'm William Tell messenger of the king of.... Alana: "Capricornicus?"  Tell: "Ah, you knew..." Alana asking him: "why are you here?" "I ran into your friend...friends...they invited me back." Tell: "What are you doing here?" "Having fun...someday I'm a princess, priestess and other day just a servant." Tell tries to force the lock,

but then she interrupts: "What are you doing? You can't do that then the bounty twins get you. They beat you up and sell you as a slave!" "Why haven't they sold you?" Then

she runs away.

Location: The Studio (down this site more about the Studio)


  Then she realizes that she be kept like a slave.

 Her father managed to visit her. She asks him quickly to hide. The brothers came in and knew there has been someone and wanted Alana to speak up.

Alana ignors them carefully. The brothers talk in turn: "Nobody may touch you, nobody may come close to you, who was it?!" Alana tries to calm down the twins: "It was no one..nobody..."

But they don't believe her "You're in trouble Alana!!"  When Doolan returns, the twins get him. Alana is in a panic and shouts to stop it and leave the man. "Why Alana? He is the one

who is been tracking us." Alana: "Because he is my father!" The twins are shocked and a big silence takes over the place. Then dad is locked up with William.


In prison

Location: The Studio. Scene: Dolan to Tell: "My own daughter, can you believe it? My own flash and blood." "You should have told me Doolan, then I would have done anything."

"Murderous hoars, bandits! My precious Alana kidnapped." Tell: "Doolan, what do you mean by that? She is never kidnapped she had run off from you! She is never been so happy as

she is now, although she is scared... Scared and happy." Dolan has to laugh loudly and his face is suddenly getting in earnest: "Nonsens, they could have been

spelled her?" Tell: "Spelled?"

Alana appeares to the twins: "Alana, why are you dressed like that?" "I come to be slaugtered!" The brothers are looking very surprised to each other. "You are going to kill me,

I know it!" "You are greasier than that stupid old man!" Then the brothers talk in turn: "You lied to us Alana. When we find you, you said to us your were an orphan.

We looked after you, we protected you, now what have you done?" "Leave me alone!" Twins shout at her: "Now you have caused us nothing but trouble with your stupid

girly fantasies!" Alana feels hurt and upset and cannot suppress. She shouts back: "What about you? You stupid two headed monster!" Immediately she regrets her words.

Then they come over and hugg each other carefully. For a moment it seems that the peace has returned.

A moment later they asking her to go. Alana responds: "You didn't give me a change, I said I was sorry." The brothers are confused, they saw Alana as their

own daughter and they felt misled but still love her. Alana doesn't seem to be fond to go away with dad. Then one of the brother said a last thing to Tell:

"Your weapons are that way under the dead tree, you've got until noon." Location: unknown field.

Scene: Dolan reassured to Tell and Alana: "We have a couple of hours. Tell, who doesn't seem to trust the twins at all: "I don't think so."

In front of the hills they should meet but Dolan gets caught by the twins and they tie him up. Twins: "Dolan, what a nice guy you are. We gonna scrap you till the bone."

They throw him behind the horse car. Can Alana and Tell arrived on time?


Location: Still unknown, a field near a village? Hardly any landmarks.

Scene: Alana hurries to her father, but then the wagon turns and the twins are coming back...heading their way.



A Runner on a road in the back?                                   Tell is alone and in disadvantage.


When I took some stills I saw a runner in the back. They quickly change camera viewpoint. It could be Alana too. There is a shot she ran to the twins..

Perhaps a shot made at the same time? This seems a little mistake.


The photo below is copyright. Behind the Bounty twins.. a road and perhaps a small town?


With Gabrielle Anwar As Alana



Crossbow Season 3, The studio

The unknown interior is found. They filmed here in at least 5 episodes.

Each time, this place was decorated differently to make it look unrecognizable. And sometimes it required a lot of work, like building a fake roof.

Yes, we found it in 2020


Episode 55: The Bounty Twins

William is captured by a Siamese twin and retained as a prisoner in the unknown place. It is shot in hamlet called "La Périgouse." Partially filmed in: STUDIO. The twins have taken care for a girl 'Alana' and protected her and she cared for them. Her father is looking for her, but the twins won't let ther be taken away.

Episode 68: The Amazons

William rescues an amazon but is captured by the others and retained as a prisoner in the unknown place. Exterior is filmed in the hamlet called "Les Palhers de Bramonas" and the interior is the STUDIO.


Episode 69: The head hunters

The first meeting with the headhunter is  in chateau la Caze. It's hard to believe, but the head hunter's headquarter is the interior of the STUDIO. Exterior riverside is at the gardens of chateau la Caze. Cool to see props like the 'Guatemalan stone head' and the same vegetation as in the Lost city.

This town is very small. There is a little hotel, used in Crossbow. There's a school to learn how to ride horses ,The Facebook page. There's an association for

children who were removed from their family because mistreatment or other.  There's a humanitarian association called NISADA

La Périgouse : It's a locality of the Sainte Enimie town dedicated to the horses.  There are farms for horses like this one (above)
