Preuilly Refreshed

There is an awful lot of building and restoration work going on in Preuilly at the moment.

Walking down Grand Rue we were amazed to see that in the short time we had been away, the old Horlogerie-Bijouterie (which has been shut ever since we started coming to Preuilly and used to look like this);

has been transformed into a very sharp looking double fronted house.


Many of the other houses in town are likewise showing new double glazed windows (just in time, because as I write this the temperature is -11), restored facades and stone walls. This is making the town look quite spruce.

Not only houses are being worked on though - the Maison de Retraite is having an extension built, which necessitates them having a large crane towering over town.

We hope before long we can start contributing more to the air of well-being and industry the town is currently showing (fingers still crossed then!)
