In 1901, Felix Boisot proposed to partially finance the construction of a new church. This project was abandoned. Gradually he acquired several farms in the village. Gradually, and with some exceptions, he replaced the old houses with new one. All these houses are on the same model inspired by the traditional farmer's house.

The farms will be sold gradually, except Caousse and Pinaout. A ram it possible to raise the water to the castle. This system was installed at the beginning of the century. Thus the castle was running water. The "water hammer" echoed in the countryside, but only a trickle of water reaching the tap. The beautiful building that housed the ram is still visible in a meadow below The wash house, built at the same time and fed by the same source, where women hired to serve the castle where the family resided washing clothes, is now in ruins.
