Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Same thing for the South of France: thick stone walls (or brick walls in the Toulouse region). Those old house are delightfully cool during hot summer afternoons.

That's for old houses; more recent construction hasn't been so careful, especially during the years when cheap and abundant energy was the prevailing paradigm. Special mention to the buildings and houses built during the 60s and 70s that should be just demolished...
