Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_09 : Yea Olde Fireplace

It took a lot of wood to heat these stone houses. Usually, they would heat just the main room. At night they would let the fire burn out while they retired to a Breton closed bed. I have only seen these beds in Brittany. The beds were enclosed. The sheets and comforters were heated up with hot water bottles or warmed stones. The bed panels varied from plain wood to intricately carved panels.
