A Rustic Cheese Hut in France
Imagine living in this cozy idyllic 300-year old stone hut in the Cantal mountains of France. Exploring the hillside. Milking cows. Quiet evenings by the fire, munching homemade cheese.
Up until the 1940's, there used to be many of these types of rustic abodes scattered around the area where shepherds would stay during the summers to make fromage. Today, they're all in poor condition except for this one, the Buron of Niercombe, beautifully restored by an Austrian in 2004.
And lucky for us, the hut is now available as a vacation rental. It even comes with a basket of traditional local foods for two days of breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Wouldn't you love to experience this?
