The Oldest House In France – Location

Built around the 13th century, this old house in Aveyron, France is still standing and inhabited in today. With it’s unique and beautiful exterior you may be wondering why the upper floors are much bigger than the ground floor. well, during that century they were only required to pay tax on the ground floor square-footage and not the upper floors. Therefore, the smaller the ground floor the cheaper it is on tax.

If you’re planning to visit this location you can stay over at the Maison d’hôtes La Singulière bed & breakfast, which is just a 20 minute walk away from the house.
