Post 11. House with painted decor

This house has several points of interest : an inscription and painted decorations.

 Map of Mayoux

On the west side of the house, a stone slab has an inscription signifying“Jesus Saviour of men, Mary. The single, honest and virtuous Charles Massy had this building made, May 16, 1662 “. This slab could have belonged to an older building and have been placed on this wall during the construction of the house.

Go around the building to admire the north, east and south facades, with their interesting painted decorations : chains in the angles and door frames.

The decorations were painted by Luc Crettaz in 1964, probably after an old existing model. Under the ridge beam of the house the date 1863, is inscribed.
