and photos of Frozzy's
Frozzy's has a very long history, it has been the school, the marie (mayors office), a restaurant and the birth place of the 3 wonderful now old ladies that we bought the home from. It special feature is the tower that dominates the front of the house, this was considered the perfect place to dry tobacco. The ladies tell us of the difficulties of living in such a large house in winter in a time when central heating was not an option. Madam also laments carrying water from the source down the hill, after climbing the hill they where then faced with the stairs! aahhh.
Of course times change and thankfully winters are now warm with central heating the window are all double glazed so the icy breezes stay outside where they belong. What's more there is now running water right in the house!..lol
It seems funny for for us to think about living without these normal comforts but for many this was life.
By the way: over the entry of most old houses in this part of France, the date of construction or placement of the lintle stone is carved into the stone. Our front door has carved into it 1837 but recently we discovered another carving of 1738 it's on the stair well, see if you can find it when you visit!
