Rental description

Book one of Hélène’s unique holiday houses in the heart of nature, an hour’s drive from the French Atlantic coast. You’ll be surrounded by apple trees, in the company of animals such as ponies, cats and chickens.

Accommodating up to 8 guests at a time, the homes are ideal for families. These once served as resting places for pilgrim’s passing through. An advocate of sustainable tourism, Hélène was careful in keeping to its historical layout during renovations. Of course, renovations were also aimed at maximizing comfort for her guests.

The houses are in the vicinity of the Isle of Mont Saint Michel, which is not to say that the mainland does not have its own beautiful landscapes to discover.

Sustainability criteria

The estate has been awarded with the green key label and recently joined the receivers of the EU-eco label.

Renovations were done ecologically, the old walls were redone with a limestone and hemp coating, and are insulated with cellulose and wood shavings along with the roof. Large glass panes and windows on the roof contribute to the heating and the structure’s brightness.

Further energy-saving methods on the property include photovoltaics installed on the roofs, and solar systems for warm water. The heaters are powered by wood and waste is treated by the homemade biological constructed wetland. It goes without saying that the owner practices recycling and waste separation.

Guests possessing a plug-in cars have access to a charging station!
