An old house dating back to 1530 and in need of restoration, only able to get to first floor due to poor structure, but interesting special staircase showing off this lantern house. Charged €2 to visit one room. Would not have bothered really as so little available to see

The house exterior is really interesting and so is the interior. It can be done in 10 minutes if you are focused

Like the previous contributor this attractive building captured our curiosity and we arranged a visit but the explanation and directions in French and in faltering English was too quick and hurried. We would have liked to have lingered and imagined the life of the household. This is nonetheless an impressive well preserved old house.
