Restoration Plans for the Covered Marketplace in Villebois-Lavalette

Built in 1665 by the Marshall Montault of Navailles, Villebois' beautiful covered market place is one the most stunning monuments in the Charente. 

In 1855, following local road expansion works, the mayor at the time had 11 wooden posts replaced by seven columns made of Tuscan stone, many of which now need urgent repair.   The roof and magnificent woodwork also need serious attention if we are to preserve this historic monument (classed in 1948) for future generations to enjoy.

The council in Villebois has decided to undertake this urgent renovation project in two phases of works but, for a commune of 750 residents, this is not going to be a simple task.

Having secured Regional as well as Departmental support for the project, the council would also like to include as many local people as possible in the restoration process too.   With the aid of the Heritage Foundation, the council is launching a "Save Our Halles" style campaign inviting local residents to donate monies towards the restoration process, thereby aleviating financial pressures on future local community spending.

If you would like to get involved in this project, you can download a subscription form direct from the Home page of our website.
