Geocache Description:


Fra : Habitat typique de la Camargue, elle servait de logement aux ouvriers agricoles, aux pêcheurs, bergers, vanniers et sauniers. Elle estt fabriquée en matériaux végétaux disponible localement comme le roseau (la Sagne), très utile pour son faible coût, les matériaux nobles étant réservés à la construction des mas. La longueur de la cabane est orientée vers le nord afin qu’elle n’offre pas de résistance au vent et notamment au mistral. Elle ne dispose d’aucune fondation : son sol est en terre battue. Les murs bas sont blanchis à la chaux et laissent paraître quelques ouvertures étroites, ce qui permet de protéger les habitants du soleil. La forte pente de sa toiture à deux versants en roseau permet un bon écoulement de l’eau de pluie. Elle ne dispose pas de cheminées mais d’un foyer central sans hotte. Un simple trou dans la toiture permet d’évacuer la fumée.

 

Gbr : Typical habitat of the Camargue, it served as housing for agricultural workers, fishermen, shepherds, basket makers and salt workers. It is made of plant materials available locally as the reed (Sagne), very useful for its low cost, the noble materials being reserved for the construction of farmhouses. The length of the cabin is oriented towards the north so that it does not offer resistance to the wind and in particular to the mistral. It has no foundation: its soil is clay. The low walls are whitewashed and reveal some narrow openings, which helps protect the inhabitants from the sun. The steep slope of its reed double roof allows for a good flow of rainwater. It does not have fireplaces but a central fireplace without hood. A simple hole in the roof helps evacuate the smoke.

 

Ita : Habitat tipico della Camargue, serviva da alloggio per i lavoratori agricoli, i pescatori, i pastori, i produttori di cestini e i salaieri. È fatto di materiali vegetali disponibili localmente come la canna (Sagne), molto utile per il suo basso costo, i materiali nobili sono riservati per la costruzione di case coloniche. La lunghezza della cabina è orientata verso nord in modo da non offrire resistenza al vento e in particolare al maestrale. Non ha fondamenta: il suo terreno è argilloso. Le pareti basse sono imbiancate e rivelano alcune aperture strette, che aiutano a proteggere gli abitanti dal sole. La ripida pendenza del suo doppio tetto a lamelle consente un buon flusso di acqua piovana. Non ha caminetti ma un camino centrale senza cappa. Un semplice foro nel tetto aiuta a evacuare il fumo.

 

Esp : Hábitat típico de la Camarga, sirvió como vivienda para trabajadores agrícolas, pescadores, pastores, cesteros y trabajadores de la sal. Está hecho de materiales vegetales disponibles localmente como la caña (Sagne), muy útil por su bajo costo, los materiales nobles están reservados para la construcción de granjas. La longitud de la cabina está orientada hacia el norte, de modo que no ofrece resistencia al viento y, en particular, al mistral. No tiene fundamento: su suelo es de arcilla. Las paredes bajas están encaladas y revelan algunas aberturas estrechas, lo que ayuda a proteger a los habitantes del sol. La empinada pendiente de su doble techo de lámina permite un buen flujo de agua de lluvia. No tiene chimeneas sino una chimenea central sin campana. Un simple agujero en el techo ayuda a evacuar el humo.
