  • We discovered this House at one of our walks on the occasion of the Easter weekend. It dates from the 19th century and owes its name to the gnomes that decorate its façade. Gnomes along the edge of the roof, seem to throw a ball from front to back. According to legend, the ball passes from the hands of one gnome at midnight every day.
