Inhabitants of Quistinic are called in French Quistinicois.
Poul-Fétan which etymologically means "Lavoir (wash-house) of the fountain" (French: Lavoir de la fontaine) is an historical center located within Quistinic. This hamlet from the sixteenth century has been completely restored with traditional materials. The houses are covered with thatch, there is the old lavoir and the ancient hemp rusting containers. Visitors can notably enter the Longère [fr] located in a farmhouse and witness an interior of the early twentieth century reconstituted and observe the craftsmen at work showing their expertise.
