old cottage is on the map as La Perruche (her
name means the parakeet) near the town of Grand Pressigny.
It has more charm than substance, however there is a communal water well, a part
which is completely demolished ( but with all the stone available) and is in a pleasant setting with
nearest neighbour on the opposite side of the road.

on site but uninstalled.
