Abandoned houses in La-Motte-Chalancon (Drôme)

South east of France, mountains of Drôme Provençale. La-Motte-Chalancon is a village where a part of family comes from. Not such a small place, and quite lively in summer, but you can find there a few more ou less abandoned old houses.

The first one is located just in front of my family house, on a little sloping alley. When I was a child, the game was of course to enter this place - there was a big hole in the middle of the ground, opening on the cellar, and sometimes we had to save wildcats of the village, who fall there. Then, the place got too dangerous and was closed. It's supposed to be completely rebuilt next year... those pictures may be the last I could take.
