Rental description

Breton charm in an outstanding environment – located in an authentic little hameau with some old stone houses, near the ocean, close to the largest megalithic site in the world as well as the idyllic landscapes of the Ria d’Etel, the sunken lanes and walking trails right in front of the house. Nestling in a secret garden this wooden chalet is fully committed to the idea of sustainability.

Inspired by the “Tiny House” principles the wooden chalet offers space for cooking, eating, sleeping and the daily hygiene. A cosy warm interior opens through big windows to the surrounding greenery. This 17m² 2-person holiday home is equipped with a double bed, a kitchenette, a living-dining area and a shower with dry toilet. Nature lovers will love to let the life flow on the gravel terrace in the screened off private little chalet garden between eucalyptus and fig tree. The holiday home is located in an impasse.

Sustainability criteria

The wooden chalet is built with sustainable materials like wood fibre insulation or wooden cladding and is dedicated to the idea of up- and recycling of materials. All materials used are reclaimed or leftover materials, from the wooden parquet, the interior and exterior cladding and the windows as well as second hand Morrocan fossilized Erfoud marble plates which have been reused for the kitchenette’s backsplash. Or the big stone plate with beautiful celtic carving discarded by a nearby located stonemason and now used as an entrance stepstone. Not to mention the curtains from old Indian silk sarees.

A multi-month trip to India with a course in an Ayurveda Academy, a stay in a Yoga Ashram and an inspiring travel with public transport taught Pascal and Sita to value simplicity and connectedness to nature and all life. The family of four is completed by 5 chickens and a dog.

Influenced by the permaculture idea they planted since autumn 2019 more than 30 trees on their 3400m² land, created a mandala garden and a dry hedge and constructed a greenhouse inspired by the earthship structures. Establishing a forest garden is their future endeavour.
