A "carrelet" is a hut for fishermen. Built of wood on piles and standing with feet in the water, it is linked to the cliff by a pontoon. The big square net, suspended from a mast, is lowered and raised by means of a winch with a counterweight. One finds carrelets along the estuary of the Gironde and on the coast of Charente.
