• Casa Pelu •
The former living home of an abandoned farm. We tinkered its details ...

... we polished antique surfaces, replaced everything that definitely could not be saved, and set on it a new attic.
Et voilà: 3 double rooms, 1 bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a cozy roof terrace for up to 6 people in good mood.
