History

2008

 

 

All starts in 2OO8 or perhaps quite before, that year we bought half of the house of our neighbor, Irma R. 

At the beginning we plan to transform it into a small house to be rented, but quickly the idea of a lodging of holidays is set up.

We must say that this house we know it well and even if it today it's completely transformed, it always remains for us "chez Irma", this small neighbor of another time which astonished us more than once.

The anecdotes are numerous, between the inside heat in winter (a cooker, two wood stoves, with fuel oil as well as a boiler, all with full mode), the coffee jug (cooked and reheated and re-re-heated), the repair of the roof (Mr. Fabian will repair the roof)… Adorable (with the children), very believing, she will have passed almost all its life in this house with her brother Ferdinand, ex-serviceman.

Even if the transformations are consequent, there remains only one hollow and the originals externals walls, we hope to preserve part of this history by our memories and interior decoration.
