Chateau d'eau

Wash houses (Les Lavoirs) have been reinstalled in many villages during the past few years. Welcome relief from the sun, a cool local meeting point and somewhere to show the history of the village. This tower was between the lavoir and the church, one of a set of pictures explaining how the local spring was maintained. You can see this tower on the horizon for at least thirty miles. Chateau d'eau, so much more poetic in French.
