Charette Washhouse


In the village, as you cross the small stone bridge straddling the Furon, down to the right you'll see a covered washhouse of relatively recent construction.
Not so long ago it was used by washerwomen, but since 1962-63 when running water arrived in the village, it has stood as a reminder of days gone by.
