Saint Hilaire-d'Ozilhan Lavoir
The St-Hilaire-d'Ozilhan Lavoir is quite a unique, old wash house. It's a covered lavoir in a setting with a covered spring, outdoor hanging area and the series of uniquely shaped basins.
This is a lovely, and unique covered lavoir, with two round basins flanking a long rectangular basin, and the whole thing positioned at one end of a long grassy area backed by a stone wall.
A covered spring at the far end of the lawn supplies the lavoir with free-flowing fresh water. Sunlight shining onto the opening of the covered spring makes reflections that dance across the inside of the enclosure.
The long stone wall between the spring and the lavoir basins was fitted with lines for hanging clothes along the full length, also unique in our experience. Now, of course, the lines are long gone, but the iron supports still jut from the stone wall.
