What specific architectural features does your building have ?
Roussel has been inhabited since ancient times, as evidenced by the foundations of the Gallo-Roman villa. The foundations can be seen from above in the axis of the chapel which was built in the 12th century, and whose nave (which collapsed in the 17th century) was rebuilt using stones from the ruins of the villa. The chapel is composed of a porch that we transformed into a kitchen, a living room, a nave, a choir and an apse. The capitals of the choir were engraved during the wars of religion and some elements are still legible. We rebuilt the grandstand by enlarging it to accommodate a bedroom and bathroom. The chapel was never a parish, and several houses (only three of which are still standing) replaced the villa. We also built "Aireauterre", a large cottage in the barn that sleeps five people and has its own terrace.
