This is inside our new barn, in it’s raw state, in July 2017. The farmer has kindly left us a few old carts and things. You can hear the enchanting sound of cowbells in the distance.

Our Nearest Waterfall

This is the nearest Waterfall ‘Cascade’ to us. Cascade de Salins. It is located on the River ‘L’Auze’ on the D922 from St. Martin Valmeroux to Mauriac. It is only fully visable from your car when travelling from the direction of Mauriac .

Repairing the Inside Wall

During our visit in September 2017. Roy has nearly finished repairing the inside wall.

You can see just how big the barn is, with Roy standing beside it. He is on the second level
