The Manoir de Jeanne — the oldest house in France. It was built 700 years ago. The ground floor is slightly smaller than the upper floor because taxes were paid based on the area used.

Discover this fascinating and charming house nestled in the streets of the medieval town of Sévérac-le-Château! The Maison de Jeanne became an internet sensation in 2017 and is considered one of the oldest houses in the Aveyron department of France.

Dating back to the 14th century, it is located at 10 Rue de Belvezet, at the corner of Passage de l’Hospice. It is renowned for its half-timbered structures and walls, some of which are made from adobe bricks. Access to the entrance is via a few steps, protected by an awning on the upper floor. Notably, it features protrusions on both levels, small window openings including an oval one on the south wall, and a double arch on the north wall.

During July and August, medieval events take place at the Maison de Jeanne, opening its doors to visitors during these occasions.

In May 2017, an American tourist posted a photo of the house on social media. Within two days, the photo was shared over 1.7 million times, making the Maison de Jeanne a global sensation ever since!
