The marketplace at Mortemart

A few years ago, the medieval ‘halle’ (marketplace) in the nearby village of Mortemart was carefully restored, allowing visitors to appreciate the technical complexity of its beamed roof.

The Restoration Project

This huge house is located right in the centre of the village of Mézierès-sur-Issoire. It has lain empty and neglected for as long as anyone can remember, or so it seems. However, when it came on the market a few months ago it was snapped up very quickly. Admittedly it was on offer at a knockdown price, but by all accounts there is a huge amount of restoration to be done. It certainly looks like it, especially in this sepia-tinted image.
