The house was sold to us with all the movables, of which there were plenty: 30 chairs, seven beds, five large cupboards, a vanload of old tools and whatnot. Plus old wine barrels – large and even larger ones (barrique and botte).
Our first guests arrived at Easter, and were given the task of dismantling various objects. Little by little, the skip began to fill up. Old paraffin heaters, straw mattresses, wood damaged by furniture beetles, mouldy paintings and other unnecessary items ended up in the skip. We made an inventory at the same time, and everything that was useful and at least partly intact was saved for restoration.
