A short history of our house

Our house was a pigsty. It is still known as the "old pigsty". The pigsty was part of a dairy in the village. During the manufacturing of the cheese production, whey was collected from the milk and fed to the pigs. The manure from the pigs helped to fertilise the soil. The cows had good grass to eat and produced good milk. But the farmers began to use chemical fertilisers on the land and the quality of the milk changed. As a result, the cheese fermented too quickly and began to swell and they could no longer sell their cheeses. The owners not only stopped selling but closed down all their ancillary business.


Today the house is called "Vinea Mea". 

Now there are lots of windows. It has become a very light and pleasant house even when the sun does not shine. The vegetation around is abundant. The interior spaces are insolated with natural materials and the walls are painted with clay in various shades of ochre, the color of the earth around us. Most of the rooms are tiled with the local stone of Burgundy.
