The admirable renovations and redecorating carried out on this 14th Century building by Jean-André and Geneviève Charial in 2007, have afforded it simple aesthetics and luminosity, bestowing a harmonious unity to the past, visible in the original stonework, and the present, represented by the modern furnishings.
