Photographer's Note

In relation to my posts 132 to 137 on the "Brière Marshland", 490Km2 situated north of St Nazaire, today I am showing you the typical dwelling of the region.

Thatched cottages are particularly numerous in the area, because the inhabitants use the reeds or yellow irises of the marshland to cover their roofs.

This cottage is situated in the open-air museum of Kerhinet, an old, restored farming village.
However, if you travel across the Brière, you will often come across thatched roofs which are not parts of museums , but of normally inhabited houses.
