@Flora … It is a “lavoir” you are correct… had I remembered to upload my photo with the original comment, it would have been an attempt at French humor… now badly gone wrong The old fashioned version of a laundromat / laundry / launderette
Chat et lavoir sont beaux tous les deux😺
Thank you, Flora, for the clarification and Vanessa for the photo. It was indeed a lavoir, so often seen in French villages. It reminded me that a visit to La Belle France is well overdue. Hopefully, that will be rectified in summer 2022. I am crossing my fingers!
haha love it.
