La maison du cochon : One of the last remaining houses with a stone roof (toit en lave).
The word « lave » derives from the French word « levé » pronounced lave in the local dialect, a word used by stonemasons.To construct the roof one must lift the flat limestone (laver la pierre) and split it lengthwise with a skillfull blow of a hammer to produce the roof tiles. They could produce roof loads up to 300kg/m2 . This explains the need for the magnificent oak roof structures constructed at 45º angles.
In a few houses small stone roofs have been preserved, as here in the « rue du Château ».
At the end of 2017 the owner of this house renovated the bread oven.
We must not forget the church !
