We saw this strange architectural mix today  in Chailles, the village across the Loire from where we live. Wonder what the half-timbered addition contains?

Nous avons vu cet étrange mélange architectural aujourd’hui à Chailles, le village de l’autre côté de la Loire. Je me demande ce que le rajout à colombages contient ?

    Hanging over the front door, I think it safe to say that it was not a forerunner of indoor plumbing.

    @William – Yes, very curious.
    @Stuart – Wouldn’t it have holes?
    @Lesley – I agree!
    @Helen – That it is!

      Yes, we’ve visited a lot in the South of France in particular, but they are usually stand-alone: http://www.aussieinfrance.com/2012/09/pigeon-houses-in-france/. I doubt if they would have one over what appears to be the front door. Have you see the one at Château Villesavin (good bike itinerary).
