Now a gallery and
cultural space with an an ever-changing agenda of exhibitions, the village’s
former communal washing house was built in 1862 as a central spot to scrub laundry and
catch up on the town gossip.
It was built by architect Charles Albert Vasserot and
consisted of three pools, one for color, one for white, and one for rinsing,
which you can still see remnants of today.
In 1991 the building was inaugurated under the name “Vasserot Lavoir”
in honor of its designer and now hosts revolving art exhibits, free and open to the public.
Duck in for a cool down and escape from the summer sun.
