HISTORY:: The previous owner was nicknamed 'Gustou'. He was used to bring his cows up to the fertile pastures on terraced land nearby the barn for the summer. The barn was located on a rocky promontory as at that time hay or dung was carried by men and it was easier to bring hay up the slope and dung down the slope. Nowadays Merens horses have replaced the cows on the summer pastures, but the newly restored barn constructed of granite wood and slate has retained its original aspect.
