This is not Little House in the Prairie but almost…You probably have already sighted small field shacks, significantly present in Ségala Tarnais’ countryside; we call them oustalous and they are still demonstrating rural life in the early XIX th century.
These shacks had above all a function of shelter for farmers and breeders. The opening threshold enabled to keep an eye on the weather. They are generally handmade with materials available on site, in fields, hence their different aspect. Some of them are made of shale, some others of limestone.
On Pampelonne’s community, Oustalous’ path will allow you to stumble on shacks restored with passion, by Pampelonne’s association for heritage preservation, on a 5,5 km course.
