The Chartreuse Voulgre

This comfortable family home with wings, (called a chartreuse in the South West of France) was bought in 1902 by Dr Voulgre’s parents. It was built at the beginning of the 19th century on 18th century buildings. It shows in its many rooms the different moments of a middle class daily life from sunrise to bedtime. The property included various buildings and agricultural plots which are now the municipal public garden.
